What's the use of having a big church building in the centre of town at the start of the busy Christmas season unless it is filled with lots of people having a happy time? This weekend is the opening of the Christmas market and ice rink in the Cathedral grounds and is also the first ever craft and gift market run by Winchester Family Church.
There are lots and lots of clever people selling fantastic handmade items, although sadly I had no time to join them this year. Among them are the ever so talented Bethany Athill, who weaves and makes beautiful items. This lovely lady who makes lots of different handmade items and many of my talented friends including the maker of these gorgeous shoes, who really needs her own blog to share all her delightful creations!
There will be lots of other stalls selling cards, children's clothing and who knows what else. I am sure you will be able to do lots of gift shopping as well as have a lovely cup of tea and a sit down. There is also face painting for children, what a fun way to spend a Saturday!
It would be lovely to see you there!
