Transition Kings Cliffe Christmas Fair 2023
We're very pleased to announce that the Christmas fair will be going ahead this year, on Sunday 3rd December, 11am - 4pm in Kings Cliffe Village Hall. Maryanne Tank has kindly volunteered to organise the fair this year, and we're very much looking forward to seeing it happen. So put the date in your diary, buy ethical products from small local independent businesses, and reduce your Christmas present miles.
As well as all the lovely wares Jez will be selling his local brew as ever, and the Village Tea Ladies will be providing tea and yummy cake. We'll have some delicious savoury food from El Ajalote and Jim Bob's Burgers. And the icing on the cake - a set from our Church Choir!
If you have any questions or would like to help out please email Maryanne. Look forward to seeing you all there!

Green Gardening Talks
Gardening in a sustainable & environmentally friendly way
Sunday 23rd July, 12.30 to 16.30 - SOLD OUT!
We will be hosting a series of Green Gardening talks covering topics that will help you garden in a more sustainable and environmentally friendly way.
Nick Bailey has kindly agreed to talk to us about 5 beautiful ways to support wildlife in your garden: A Talk on the Wild Side. Nick is a leading English plantsman and garden designer. He splits his time between designing gardens, horticultural consultancy, public speaking, and writing and presenting on BBC Gardeners’ World. He has recently moved to Kings Cliffe – how lucky are we!
Matthew Kirk will share his knowledge and experience to give us an introduction to no-dig organic veggie gardening.
Our local biodiversity champion Charles Tomalin will be talking to us about ways in which you can help wildlife feel at home in your garden: Building Creature Comforts. He will be focusing on creating shelters and safe areas for all manner of critters from insects to mammals to birds.
Yummy refreshments will be available throughout: Tea and coffee, home-made cakes and cream teas, home-made veggie and meaty sausage rolls. And why not treat yourself to a glass of refreshing Pimms, with home-grown cucumber and mint of course.
The event will be hosted in the Upper Community Room at Kings Cliffe Active. Some tickets are still available at £10 each. For more information or to reserve tickets in advance please contact Kate at: firstname.lastname@example.org or call: 07961 499018.
