Here’s a chance to get into the Christmas spirit this Sunday, 1st December 2013 – there’s a Christmas Fayre being held at Chasewater Innovation Centre. At the same time, you can check out the Santa Specials at Chasewater Steam Railway, and take a wander around the lake which is now full and teeming with wildlife once more.
Chasewater Country Park and Innovation Centre will be holding its annual Christmas Fayre on Sunday 1 December from 10am till 4pm.
This years fayre will have even more stalls than before giving visitors lots of different activities to enjoy and the chance to stock up on some unusual Christmas gifts. Visitors can sample from the many food stalls, sing along with the choir, or visit a range of jewellery, crafts and even baby clothes stands. Children can also meet Santa and take a ride on the steam train.
The Forest of Mercia team will also be at the fare providing lots of children’s activities, as well as selling their own hand crafted wood pieces.
Cllr Mike Lawrence, Cabinet Member for Children, Communities and Localism with Staffordshire County Council said:
‘This is a great opportunity for some Christmas fun and shopping this festive season for all the family. Chasewater is a wonderful place to visit and I would encourage people to come along on Sunday, sing along with the choir and get into the Christmas spirit.’
