SATURDAY 22ND NOVEMBER
TRADITIONAL CHRISTMAS WORKSHOP
 
Christmas doesn't have to be an expensive and environmentally destructive orgy of commercialism! People flocked to the St Anne's Centre for a variety of mini drop-in workshops, covering the traditional elements that make up the festive season - food, gifts and decorations. Highlights included 'the longest paperchain in the world', decorated gingerbread biscuits and a new breed of dinosaur - the Santasaurus!

Yeah, well OK - maybe this one does look a bit like a platypus ...

CONNIE'S TRIP TO BAKEWELL

Connie is now four years old and has had a few adventures over the years, but until July 2014 she'd never been out of Buxton, and never been in a vehicle. But when the request came for her to go to the Bakewell Green Fair, well - what could she say!? The horse box they sent to collect her was barely big enough, but she squeezed in there, and had a great day meeting new friends and old. As well as spreading the message that Consumerism is No Good!
