Merry Christmas From Chilstone!
Saturday, December 20, 2014
Things are looking more than a little bit like Christmas here at Chilstone! At the start of this most wonderous of months, Penshurst held a most merry Christmas Market, and Chilstone were filled with joy after being asked to be a part of it. There was a wide selection of stalls and goings on, and the local crafts and products were fantastic! The Penshurst Christmas Market is a very popular local event which raises over £20,000 for The Pickering Cancer Drop in Centre and The Friends of Penshurst Church charities. To help contribute to these causes, Chilstone donated a £100 gift voucher and displayed some of our Christmas gifts, including the Scratching Hares and bronze Dormice at the event. The stalls looked fantastically festive, and the cakes by Purple Flour were delightfully decorated and delicious! Then we were all treated to some lovely Christmas carols! These great pics were taken by Little Olives Photography! After all of that Christmas joy and money raised over the Penshurst Christmas Market, Chilstone are just about ready for a little Christmas break. We will be closing our doors at 5.00pm on 23rd December and re-opening them and welcoming in the new year at 9.00am on 5th January. A very merry Christmas to you all!
