On a rainy day, GRASSROOTS, based in High Town Methodist Church, marked the first event of the High Town Living Advent Calendar, by welcoming the local community with free Fairtrade teas and coffees.
People bought some beautiful Fairtrade Christmas hampers and other ethical and Fairtrade Christmas gifts including Fairtrade Santas for as little as £5 each.
Sr Maire Hayes, Roman Catholic Northampton Diocesan Inter Faith Coordinator presented a challenging display of Christmas in Other Cultures (below).
Sam Willis, High Town Community Worker, said, “Traditional advent calendars have chocolates behind their doors, but a Living Advent Calendar can help reveal a surprise in the High Town neighbourhood, on each day in the run up to Christmas. People can take part in all sorts of activities which include singing or dancing, watch live performances, learn how to make Christmas decorations or even help keep High Town tidy.”
