Christmas starts THIS Saturday at the FUSS Christmas Fair on Staplehurst Rd!
Pick up a beautiful, freshly cut non-drop Nordmann Christmas tree from the Hither Green Community Association stall. Come early and secure a tree as they are always sold out by the early afternoon.
Trees are available in all sizes.
Proceeds from the trees fund the work of the Hither Green Community Association all year, including the planting of street trees! Once again they will be donating a 12ft tree to the congregation of St Swithun’s Church on Hither Green Lane.
Pro-tip: wherever you buy your tree, most likely it won’t have roots; so keep the tree well misted with a water bottle sprayer or have it stand in some water. Your tree will keep fresh well into the New Year!
It’s the FUSS CHRISTMAS FAIR!
The Countdown to the Hither Green Christmas Fair has started! Come and enjoy 70 stalls, musical guests, hot food, handmade gifts for family and Christmas trees. Plus Santa will be in his Station Hotel grotto!
Fancy helping out with stewarding? Please email Fusschristmas@hotmail.com with the subject header VOLUNTEERS.
Also any unwanted and unloved items that could be used for the Tombola, books or Bricabrac stall can be dropped off at 56 Manor Park.
