CRESS Christmas Market 2020 @ CRESS Pavilion
Dec 4 @ 10:00 am – 1:00 pm

Christmas is not cancelled at ActivGardens! We are bringing our wonderful array of produce, crafts and gifts to you – but this year at the community garden so we can keep safe in the open air.

The event will be held on Friday 4th December, from 10am to 1pm at our lovely site on Maidenhall Allotments.

Owing to Covid-19 restrictions, we will need to limit numbers of people on site, and manage the site safely, so please be patient if you have to wait for admission at the garden gate (on the laneway between Halifax and Wherstead roads). Alternatively, please get in touch to book a slot – especially if you are coming in a bubble/ group (of no more than six people please).

Come along to pick up some freshly harvested winter produce or lovely own-grown plants. Make up a hamper of delicious garden-made jams, chutneys and pickles. Choose a wooden gift from ActivSheds. There will be Christmas wreaths, crafts and much more to browse – all made by our volunteers and learners.

We will also be serving seasonal refreshments so you can enjoy a socially distanced chat with your friends and get to know other people in the community.

  • Please park at the CRESS Pavilion, Halifax Road, Ipswich IP2 8RE or on surrounding roads.
