On Saturday 30th November, Kidsgrove held its annual Victorian Christmas Market. The event was held at two venues, the Town Hall and Kidsgrove Methodist Church. This was due to the uptake in applications for stalls and to also give the businesses an opportunity to offer more of their wares for what is intended to be a professional event. People flocked to the event from far and wide, making the event successful for another year. The Mayor’s charities made £700 for Staffordshire Sands and local causes.
Entertainemnt was also provided by upcoming local artist Vanessa Bebbington, Tamil Dancers of the Tamil School of Stoke-on-Trent, Kidsgrove Community Choir and St Thomas’ Primary School Choir.
Hilary Wilshaw said “We really enjoyed the day and we raised a good amount of monies for Greyhound Gap, to support abused and abandoned dogs.”
Tesco Community officer, Rich Evans said: “A massive well done to Kidsgrove Town Council for another great Victorian Market yet again. We sold all our produce by 11.30am and we met lots of lovely people.”
Thank you to all volunteers, Councillors, traders and the Kidsgrove Rotary club for taking part.
