Hither Green: The Fuss Christmas Fair- Sat 7 Dec. @HGFUSS

Well the countdown is beginning just a month to go until the Fair in Staplehurst Road.  Thanks to those stalwarts who beaver away behind the scenes,  preparations are well under way.

We have over 50 stalls booked so this is going to be bigger and better {we Hope} than ever.

Through the Lee Manor Society we have had a couple of welcome offers of help with the event, but please don’t be shy-  your community needs you! Just an hour of your time to distribute leaflets, help set up on the day or look after one of our stalls would be great.

The Fair happens on Saturday 7 December -o do add it to your diaries.  12- 5pm

WINE BOTTLES! : last year we had a very successful water and wine wheelbarrow. With much sacrifice on our part, we are managing to collect plenty of empty wine bottles to fill with water, this means we have a shortage of full ones!!

Any contribution of full screw capped bottles of wine for this stall or for the mulled wine would be much appreciated! Please email:  fusspot100@gmail.com

TOMBOLA: We also need prizes for the Tombola, Bric a Brac and book stalls.  These can be left in the porch at 85 Manor Park.

Please be generous and make this an event to be proud of.

Thank you

Chair, Friends and Users of Staplehurst Shops (FUSS)
