Christmas Fair

A date for your diary. Saturday 30th November 2019, 12 pm – 3 pm.

This year, the Christmas Fair will be held in Otterbourne Village Hall and we will be raising funds for St.Matthew’s Church. There will be a variety of stalls, refreshments, light lunches and much more.

Further details will follow soon. However, we are hoping to attract a wide variety of stallholders including ‘Nearly New’ stalls and so, if you would be interested in having a stall at this event and would definitely like to book a space, a booking form will need to be completed by the end of October. The booking form will appear here soon. Stalls cost £10 each although stalls can be booked for free if you are willing to donate the proceeds to St. Matthew’s Church.
