Christmas Fayre

Is it ok to mention C H R I S T M A S. We know it’s still October but in order to avoid clashing with other local events the Alva Christmas Fayre is a week earlier this year on Sat 18th November and the clock is ticking.

There will also be a Christmas Late Night Shopping Evening with an appearance from Santa in his sleigh on Thursday 16th November – more information to follow.
