Grow Mayow’s Christmas Fair

 Here is a  taste of what there was:   A range of food; stalls selling saris, felt products, knitted products, painted pebbles, canal art-ware and much more; opportunities to make table decorations with natural objects and plenty of glitter.
 Even the busy volunteers enjoyed the day. To quote Suriya, one of the volunteers managing the site, “it was a magical, cosy atmosphere, with fairy lights and wood burning stoves warming people up. And many people  voiced an interest in learning gardening skills.”
The Grow Mayow volunteers have turned this small site in Mayow Park into an active social hub which draws people in, not only to the project but also into the main park.
