Telford crafters and suppliers are being invited to be part of an autumn fayre and Christmas lights switch on as more events return to Lightmoor village.
The events have been organised by community housing organisation Bournville Village Trust, with the fayre taking place on 7th November and the Christmas event planned for 9th December.
Both events will take place in Lightmoor Village Square and at the Oak Tree Centre and there are a limited number of free stalls available at both events.
Bournville Village Trust, which manages homes and facilities in the village, helped to organise and host regular events in the village with community partners prior to the outbreak of Covid.
Fleur Hemming, Lightmoor Estates and Stewardship Manager at Bournville Village Trust, said: “In the past our events in the village have always been popular and we know the community have really missed them over the past 18 months, so we are really looking forward to seeing everyone again.
“We love showcasing local talent at events, so we have a limited number of stalls available and would urge people to get in touch now.”
At the Christmas lights switch on and Fayre, the residents of Bournville House extra care housing scheme are looking forward to being involved in the event.
They will be providing mulled wine, hot chocolate and coffee, as well as a small number of stalls.
All money raised will go towards the scheme’s entertainment kitty which provides activities for its older residents.
Donna Lister-Trowell, Manager of Bournville House, said: “Throughout Covid and lockdowns our residents have missed both seeing members of the community but also having a regular entertainments programme. They are so excited about the Christmas event and we hope lots of people will come and support them.”
