East Greenwich Farmers Market Cancelled

I guess it was inevitable, really. Sadly Halstow Road School just can’t get the snow shifted – and since London’s Ancient Weather God Peter Cockroft has just forecast ice and fog for tomorrow, the East Greenwich Farmer’s Market’s been cancelled. If you’re desperate you can go to Dulwich College Christmas fair where the stall holders will be, but I’m suspecting that most of us will prefer to trudge across the heath to Blackheath on Sunday morning instead. I haven’t heard that that’s affected. 

I thought you might need cheering up after that bit of grim news, so here is a picture of my advent calendar. As you can see, two out of the three windows so far are penguins dressed as choirboys. Is someone trying to tell me something?

    And also on sunday afternoon, there’s the East Greenwich Pleasaunce Carols. Because of the cold, it will be slightly briefer than originally planned.
    At 1pm the Orchard will be planted (this is a project with Project Westcombe – 6 fruit trees which should see fruit in 3 years!)
    At 2pm Santa will arrive
    2-2.30 Carols led by the Halstow Community Choir
    Err… that’s it… clear up and warm up!
