Christmas craft fair success

A Winter Craft Fair and Christmas Event was the final event of the year held at The Friday Café in St David’s Church in Childwall.

The well-attended event included home-made cakes & sweet gifts, local artists and a local craft group and craft activities for children.

People got the chance to try their hand at making a Christmas themed floral display thanks to Liverpool Adult Learning Service.

Santa made an appearance, there was a raffle and Rudston Primary School choir sang festive songs.

Councillor Liz Parsons, Cabinet member for communities and partnerships and local councillor, said: “This was a great event that brought together people of all ages and backgrounds.

“It was really nice to see local people mixing with each other and people getting to know one another. Friendships created at this type of event can last a lifetime.”

Mayoral lead for older people in the south of the city and local councillor, Jeremy Wolfson, said: “Bridging the intergenerational divide is one of my priorities as Mayoral Lead.

“It was fabulous having the Rudston Primary school choir there. They sang beautifully and it made the event even more meaningful. Events like this are important in building connections between local schools and communities.”

The Friday Café was set up using a slice of Mayoral Neighbourhood Fund by Cllrs Jeremy Wolfson and Liz Parsons. It has run every week for more than four years, with an event on the first Friday of every month.
