The Christmas Fayre at St Faith’s Church on 23 November has a full house now with all the stalls taken and the Lord Nelson confirmed on board serving mulled wine, real ale and hot, festive food.

Other newcomers are Indian Presence, Serranda Sensuals, London Mummy, Ethical Babe, Lorna Kyle Handmade Cards and Crafts, Neal’s Yard Remedies Organic, Mission Explore, Mini IQ and Wozu.
Each will be bringing a host of ideas for Christmas and all the family are catered for when it comes to gift shopping. Seasonal cards and decorations will be on sale, plus plenty of inspiration for the younger members of the family. Jewellery and beauty products, children’s clothes and beautiful home accessories will be displayed.
The Reverend Derath Durkin, vicar at St Faith’s, says: “There’ll be a great mix of West London businesses represented at the Fayre. Local talent in the form of choirs and musicians are lined up for the entire three hours, creating a wonderful soundtrack for the evening.”
Raffle tickets will be on sale at the Fayre with a many prizes, such as dinner for two with a bottle of wine at the Lord Nelson, a Cookery Coach lesson worth £110, a Plum Duff Christmas hamper and a fresh 13lb turkey provided by Richardsons.
Children will be kept busy doing crafts while parents browse the stalls, taking advantage of the variety of presents on sale to get a head start on Christmas shopping. Doors open at 6.00pm and it will finish at 9.00pm. Last year’s event was hugely popular, and the organisers are expecting things to be just as brisk this time.
