PARISH CHURCH CHRISTMAS FAYRE
Held in St Peter and St Pauls


Santa Claus and his little helper the Elf, talk over their Christmas expectations with two children who attended the Christmas Fayre. Santa is in fact Jim McClure the husband of Lynda McClure, our Parish Administrative Officer. The little but active Elf is Janine Wyman, who many readers will know is responsible for the bulk delivery of Parish Magazines to the individual deliverers. All the children visiting Santa were given a blank but headed letter ready for Santa, and a special post box (on the right of this picture) in which to deliver it, on which they could write down their requests for Christmas, in the knowledge that not all wishes are granted, but many actually are! are!


This Pre-Christmas event was organised by the ‘Friends of St Osyth Parish Church’ and Mark Roberts their Chairman said in the Parish Magazine that he wanted to thank all his Committee and the many others who have helped with activities during the year. This Christmas Fayre was held on the 5th December and ran from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. and from the start the Church was full of people searching for ideas for Christmas presents. There were many more stalls that I ever remember before and it would have been difficult to get any more in, but the atmosphere was that of a good healthy pre Christmas outing with every taste being catered for!
There were book stalls, Cakes, Preserves, Tombola, Gift Stalls, Flowers, Bric-a-brac, and so on. I personally found the mulled wine and mince pies were very interesting. Visitors played ‘Shove Ha'penny’, which I am sure was the first time many had played this for years! There were a number of raffles with good cash prizes and one which struck me as unusual to say the least, where one bought a raffle ticket but the prize was unknown, because it was to be one half of this raffles income that day!!
There were so many individual stalls and small pockets of activity, that I made no attempt to photograph them all – as which ones would I put on this page and which would I leave off? Hence the more general views below!

At today’s date the 5th we are only 20 days away from the celebration of Christmas Day itself. The Friends of St Osyth Parish Church would like to wish all visitors to this web article; A Happy Christmas and a Healthy New Year.
