A massive thank you...
To all of you that attended Kev's Christmas Market - stallholders and shoppers. We had an absolute ball and those of you who did your Christmas shopping with us can rest in the knowledge that you made a difference in supporting our local makers and independent traders.
We had so much fun, we're planning something for the Spring! Watch this space...
Kev's Christmas Market - Shop Local This Christmas
We planned to create a series of outdoor, weekend Christmas Markets running from 14th November to 20th December but the pandemic had other ideas! As a result we're now squeezing all of the good stuff into three weekends:
19th, 20th December
Each market will be open from 10am to 4pm and we'll have all kinds of stalls from local makers, traders and independent craftsmen/women
We're in the middle of a field and so suitable footwear is best .... a little bit of rain won't deter us!
Most of our stallholders are equipped to take cards so contactless payment is preferred
Each day will see a variation of stallholders so visit us more than once and get all of your Christmas shopping done in one place!
As it's our last weekend of Kev's Christmas Market, I'm throwing open a competition for someone to win one of my garden arches. Organic and whimsical in design, the arch is made of two freestanding parts that can be placed as close or as far apart as you'd like in your garden. Fixed to the ground with pins they look great as they are, or nestled in amongst the flora and climbers they can make themselves right at home.
Sooo, you've got to be in it to win it! To enter the competition, here are the rules:
* You must visit my stall at Kev's Christmas Market sometime over this weekend (Saturday or Sunday)
* You need to fill in an entry form and drop it in the box
* By filling in an entry form with your details, you'll be added to my mailing list (you can unsubscribe at any point)
* One entry per person
* A winner will be drawn out of the box on Tuesday at random and the winner will be notified both personally and announced on social media
* You may collect the arch from my workshop or delivery can be arranged within a 20-mile radius for free, or via a courier at your cost if you're further away
