Christmas Eco Fair, November 27th 2021

Even though that morning the village had received its first sprinkling of snow, St Mary’s still had a steady flow of people visiting the various stalls at the eco fair and enjoying the hot tea and coffee and mouth watering cakes that were on sale. On the Friends of St Mary’s stall, we were selling our stunning Christmas cards depicting a snowy atmospheric view of the church, courtesy of Lenham Studio Photography + Design.  As part of the eco theme, our chairman Andrew Barr brought along a sheep’s fleece and was engaging with visitors to our stall on the many uses of wool in our day-to-day life; very interesting. The eco fair was a great opportunity to promote the Friends of St Mary’s and to sell our cards, where all proceeds go towards ensuring that this historic building remains an important and central feature of the village for generations to come.
