Christmas spirits ran high at the Christmas Market which took place in Sindlesham Court on 12th and 13th December.
The market was organised and run by Amanda Heppelthwaite and Nicole Wade with the help of many volunteers. It was sponsored by local party company Razzle Dazzle.
The market is normally hosted at Reddam House (aka Bearwood College). This year however, it was decided that Sindlesham Court would be the perfect location, to support the Berkshire Freemasons HQ and raise the awareness of the Centre to the general public. Planning is already in place for two more events due to run in 2021, at Easter and in late November.
The Centre was utilised to its max including free parking for all visitors in the car park. Stalls were setup in The Flavell and The Abbey Rooms offering lots of goodies from homeware, clothing and beauty products to jewellery, Christmas decorations and food items.
There was an outdoor café offering lots of festive treats and mulled wine to keep up the energy reserves of the Christmas shoppers. Musical entertainment was provided by WBro. Brian Bicknell.
A Tombola was held in aid of the Berkshire 2023 Festival. A grand total of £106 was raised.
