Saturday 18th December

This week we are fortunate to be holding Orford Country Market on Saturday in St. Bartholomew's Church in Orford for the last market before Christmas. Not only is the church a wonderful space to present all the lovely Home Made ~ Home Grown ~ Hand Crafted products that our producers will be offering for sale this weekend but it also provides an opportunity to reflect on the story of Christmas stunningly displayed in the glass in the east window. Attributed to the firm of Clayton and Bell the Virgin and Child will be looking down on the happy faces of people enjoying mince pies and mulled wine from Maria and the sound of festive hand bells from the Leiston Bellringers. We will also have a background of Christmas Carols to get you all into the spirit of the season. 

Remember that you still have time to order produce for collection from Orford Town Hall on Thursday 23rd December but do join us at the last Saturday market this year when the goodies will include:
