Hurstpierpoint Christmas Fair 2019
This year's Christmas Fair will be Friday 29th November (6.30 - 9pm) and
Saturday 30th November (9.30 - 1pm).
The warm atmosphere of the Village Centre is certainly welcoming compared with the weather outside.
Some stalls are still available for this year's event with stall-holders already booked for new books, stationery, jewellery,
toys, pottery, cards and gifts of carvings made in Bethlehem.
The Fair raises valuable funds for the Club.

There is a free car park opposite, but on the right hand side you need to show one of the MSDC time clocks

Gymnasts are reminded that they should not be wearing any jewellery, bracelets, friendship bands or ear-rings.
(If ears were pierced in the last six weeks you will need to tape over your studs.)
All work is done barefoot without shoes, socks, tights or leggings.
Special congratulations go to Jasmine Cross who this term will be presented with her third Gold Award
