The Friends of Wortham Church are holding their annual Victorian Christmas market on Friday, December 7.
Organisers are promising more stalls, many under cover, with much better lighting and parking facilities for this year’s charity event between 4pm and 7 pm outside Wortham Post Office and Tea Shop
There will be the usual variety of Christmas stalls including hot dogs, raffle which will include a Christmas hamper, gift baskets, tombola, holly wreaths, sequined decorations and cake stall.
The Tea Shop will be open for teas and coffees and will also be serving mince pies and mulled wine with donations going to East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices.
Entertainment will be from the singers of Discord, music from Jonnie Ling’s fairground organ and carols from the local primary school children.
There will also be a town crier, Father Christmas arriving on his decorated sleigh, and Magic Marks children’s entertainment.
As the gates to the Royal Hospital Gardens at Chelsea opened to the world’s media yesterday, with a frenzy of activity as photographers and camera crews vied for the best vantage points, there was also a very palpable sense of relief among the hundreds of nurserymen and women who have come to exhibit their prize horticultural specimens that their stands were complete and looking their very best.
