Auction for Calais; can you donate?

Posted by E17 Designers

Local artists/makers are donating work for auction on 21 November, 7.30 at Queens Arms, Orford Road.

Anyone who wants to donate should drop their work off at Debbie Bliss Home 36 Orford Road (10 till 6 Monday to Saturday).

I assume they will need an image of the work to put on the auction website, but I haven't been given that info, maybe ask for an email address when you go in!

looking ahead to 2017: Valentines Day or Mother's Day?

looking ahead to 2017: Valentines Day or Mother's Day?

*Thinking* about a Vestry House Museum event: we did an event in March (1940's themed craft fair) and they said thay had 500 people come through the doors..

 

As a theme, the two dates I am talking about are good opportunites for fairs. Which do you think would be better, bearing in mind the sort of customers and the venue? Over to you, zip me an answer and we will review with Mhairi later on in the year based on their calendar and the results:

St James Street Big Local

Posted by E17 Designers

 

From St James Street Big Local: reply direct to Tom McVeigh
 
We have had an event around the Christmas tree for the past couple of years and this year St James Street Big Local want to expand it a little. We are having a lantern procession of local school children down the High Street from outside Wilko down to the St James Street end of the High street where the tree is. We want some food stalls and a up to 4 craft stalls selling Christmas themed items and have had a meeting with Waltham Forest street trading who are happy for us to go ahead and organise it. They ask the stall holders to provide product and public liability documents. We are looking for stallholders to provide their own stalls and awnings etc but we could get in touch with street trading to see if they have any they could provide?
 
 
The order of events is as follows:
 
Stallholders set up from  3 00 onwards on 11th December
 
Children meet at outside Wilko with lanterns at 4 30 and then the procession starts down High St. 
 
Give some time for people to eat, buy gifts and get a glass of mulled wine and mince pies or German cake. 
 
 From 5 45 until 6 00 we have a chamber choir giving a performance from 5 45 until 6 00 then they will join the public with the brass band with 1 hour of Christmas carols.
 
I hope this helps and please do get in touch with any questions.

LEYTONSTONE’S CHRISTMAS MARKET TRAIL

¯  This market is supported by the London Borough of Waltham Forest, Stone’s Throw Market, the local business community, Church Lane Market, Matalan Market and the High Road Leytonstone Methodist Church.

¯  It is part of a community strategy to draw people into Leytonstone on the first Saturday of December.

¯  The Christmas Market Trail has a key role in this strategy.  We hope to present a high quality Christmas Market incorporating ‘Stones Throw Market’ located at St John’s and additional stalls at Lister Memorial Hall, Leytonstone Methodist Church, Matalan Market, all offering a wide range of Art and Craft Stalls with goods for sale.

¯  Most of the space at St John’s will be taken up by ‘Stone’s Throw Market’ therefore unless you are already part of that market, you will be applying for one of the Art & Craft stalls available in the Lister Hall of High Road Methodist Church.

¯  The Market will be open to the public from 11am – 4pm and stall holders need to undertake to be there for that period.

¯  The charge for having a stall is £12.50 each, and all of this sum will go towards the rent for use of the halls and should be paid in advance to secure your place.  Cheques for Lister Road should be made to Leytonstone Methodist Church.

¯  Stall holders will be expected to take out their own insurance for this event.

¯  Stalls can be set up from 10:00am on Saturday 3rd December, and must be cleared away by 5pm on Saturday 3rd December.

¯  Applications for an Art & Craft stall at this Christmas Market must be made to the Rev. ‘Femi Cole-Njie, Leytonstone Methodist Church, Corner of Leytonstone High Rd & Lister Road, Leytonstone E11 3DS, by email or post using the application form on the next page, by 30th October 2016.

Waltham Forest Council have received funding from the Mayor's Air Quality Fund to start up a Zero Emissions Delivery Scheme for local businesses. This service will be free to businesses and will commence with a trial at Christmas, with deliveries taking place between 12-23 December in the E17 area using cargo bikes and electric vehicles. 

If this is something that your designers would be interested in utilising, particularly at your Christmas markets, please could they contact me at localdeliveries@walthamforest.gov.uk
