Blue Christmas 2018

Ho Ho Ho...Santa is coming!

Time flies and so does Santa's sleigh. Blue Christmas is a special community day out for all the family in the Blue Market and Santa will be dropping in to say hello and spread the Christmas joy.

You can have your photo taken in the family Snow Globe, prove your skills with a ride on the Rodeo Reindeer or take the Snowboard Challenge. There will be market stalls featuring local entrepreneurs and traders, food and drinks with loads of things to occupy the kids including Frog Morris's Family Tent and Puppet show in Blue Anchor library.

SHOPPING IN THE BLUE - POZIES FLORISTS
Pozies Florist Bouquet
Pozies Florist arrangement
Sometimes it is hard to find the words to communicate our inner feelings; from showing our love to that special person, offering condolences or wishing someone well. Plants and flowers help us to convey the sentiment when the right words can't be found, say it with flowers. 

POZIES Florist is a family run business who understand how important it is to choose the right flowers to reflect your emotions. The friendly team will help you find the right solution whatever the occasion.

The Thank You project is dedicated to the Southwark soldiers who did not return from WW1 and the importance of saying Thank You. A total of 344 Southwark soldiers did not make it back home and their names are commemorated on the stone wall of the screen behind the high altar in Southwark Cathedral. 345 pieces of art were made, one extra for the unknown, as a thank you to those who give their time and energy in delivering essential services.
