A winter wonderland awaits visitors to Goscote Greenacres this coming week with a seasonal market running over two days. The first ever Goscote at Christmas Market will run on Friday 7 and Saturday 8 December 2012.
On Friday, there will be craft stalls, festive foods, bric-a-brac, raffles and a school choir from 10am until 2pm. On Saturday, from 11am until 2pm there will be festive music, jewellery, craft stalls, homemade pickles and handmade Christmas wreaths and yule logs.
And Santa Claus is due to pop in on Saturday 8 December between 11am and 2pm!
Paul Mason, Goscote Greenacres’ community development officer, said:
“This is our first Christmas market here at Goscote and we’re really looking forward to both days.
“There’s plenty to see and hear and it’s also a chance for people to have a look at the site and find out a bit more about the opportunities here.”
Admission is free and the Goscote Greenacres cafe will be open for visitors to buy refreshments.
“We look forward to welcoming people and spreading some festive cheer,” Paul concluded.
Goscote Greenacres is based at the Goscote Centre for adults with disabilities and is being driven by them, their carers and the wider community.
It is a partnership between Walsall Council’s Adult Social Care, Walsall Adult and Community College, North Walsall Area Partnership and others.
The wheelchair accessible site in Goscote Lane, has a community cabin, raised beds and community garden plots.
