The St Wulfran’s Christmas Fair is coming along, but we still need anything Christmassy for the Christmas stalls – and pottery and glass for a new stall – which we are separating from unwanted gifts this year. Also jewellery and scarves. Hope you can help. We can collect. We also have one small rail, so if you have any lovely clothes, these will be gratefully accepted too.
