The Selsdon Christmas market in 2019 was a great success, which we hope will be the first of many. The pandemic meant that we had to cancel the 2020 market, but that makes the 2021 market even more important.
Unfortunately, the bankruptcy of the Council means that the main source of funding, local councillor ward budgets, although still a possibility, is unlikely to provide sufficient funds, and may be cancelled altogether. To run the market we need around £2,000 over and above the income from stallholders. This needs to come from somewhere, and it needs to be soon as stallholders have other opportunities around the Christmas period and without them we do not have a market.
We are therefore asking local people and organisations for their support. Offers of contributions, small or large will be most welcome. We will not be collecting them until the first week in September but we need to know that we have enough support to continue with organising the event.
Please get back to us on SelsdonCommunityPlan@gmail.com as soon as you can, preferably before Friday 27th August.
