A last reminder that for the Christmas and New Year period there will be a double box next Tuesday 22nd December rather than the usual weekend collection, with usual collections resuming on Friday 8th January 2016. Please email us to let us know if you do want this double Christmas/New Year period, otherwise we will assume that you are away and count them towards your holiday boxes.
Love it or hate it, Winterville is around for another week or so. Whilst there are official local residents tickets, cheaper tickets may be found on the yplan app. The ice-skating is a real steal (£3.50 off-peak, there is still time!!!) with lovely wardens who don’t necessarily chase you off the ice so you can skate to your heart’s content.
Harking for a traditional carols by candlelight? In addition to Nine Lessons at St Dunstan’s (listed in image above) across the road from the farm there is also one this Sunday 6pm’s at St Anne’s Limehouse, which also has a midnight Christmas Eve service at 11:30pm, or a crib service for families at 4pm on Christmas Eve.
Come to the last farmers’ market of the year at Stepney City Farm and join in a festive sing-a-long with St Dunstans at 2pm this Saturday. There is also a nativity service on Friday 4pm and a Christingle service Sunday 11am at St Paul’s Shadwell and Christmas service this Sunday at East London Tabernacle at Mile End, just a stone’s throw away from The Coffee Room.
