Hartford's Victorian Christmas
Hartford's Victorian Christmas fair is on Saturday 2nd December from 10am to 2.30pm.
It's a great time for the community to get together, and this year there'll be a variety of craft and other stalls in St John's Church, St John's Church Centre and outside the Chester Road shops.
Details will be published nearer the time, but please save the date and check the Facebook page for the Victorian Christmas.
There'll be carol singing by local choirs, activities for young & old, plus refreshments available in and outside the Church Centre and at other locations around the village.
