COR!!!! IT’S APPLE DAY AT THE FOOD MARKET – WITH SOME A-PEELING IDEAS
It’s Apple Day at the market! Bring your surplus apples and join local cook & food writer Rachel de Thample at the Patchwork Farm stall. Try the apple press to make your own juice, learn how to make apple cider, string dried apple rings and take home an apple cake recipe. Thanks to Mike Conrad for bringing us a TON of apples.
Plus, we would like to wish The Paxton Centre a very happy first birthday! Beth says “We are 1 yr old! Join us for our Creative Celebration Party! This is a social event for creatives from all areas of art, craft, music, theatre and for those interested in the local art scene to connect and meet like minded people.
Since opening the centre we have supported many various artists, craftspeople, designers and tutors to sell their work locally and pass on creative skills. We have evolved into a great space for people to meet over a drink to enjoy our vibrant community space plus showcasing the richness of talented makers from all over South London. So lets celebrate and look forward to many more community connections.”
