Ross-in-Bloom Advent Market

A very successful Advent Market was held last Sunday by Ross-in-Bloom to raise funds for Ross Pre-school Playgroup. Approximately twenty crafts and charity stalls took part, selling a very wide selection of craft items and bric a brac suitable for Christmas Gifts.

Stallholders were encouraged to wear something festive, such as a Christmas Hat or Flashing Jewellery and Ross Town Band arrived after lunch to entertain both stallholders and shoppers alike. The day produced lots of smiles and all stallholders went away with cash boxes of takings - proof the event was a great success.

All shops in the town had previously been visited and given a flyer or poster to display It was an ideal alternative opening time instead of the late night shopping event, which has not been a huge success in the past. Some shops opened for trading too.

Everybody agreed that the day had been successful and many asked if it could be held again next year.

Cards for Good Cause had a good day selling their Christmas Cards in the Heritage Centre, where they will be available until Sunday, 10th December. The cards are selling fast so an early visit is recommended.

Pictured below are some of the charity stalls at Sunday's Advent Market.
