WFPSC at the St Barnabas Christmas Fayre, 4 December ’16
On Sunday the 4th we joined a well-attended community event in the St Barnabas Church in Walthamstow.
Visitors streamed in and out throughout the afternoon buying Christmas presents made by local organisations and arty residents and having cakes and hot drinks.
The link with a Christian family in Bethlehem made the event even more special. Sami Awad of the
http://www.holylandtrust.org/about-holy-land-trust.html spoke to the people attending the Fayre via a laptop which Cannon Steven Saxby carried around the Church Hall.
Steven and his family made everybody so very welcome and good time was had by all.
We had chats with so many fellow Waltham Forest residents who tried our Palestinian olive oil and zatar and acquired quantities of it, as well as Palestinian dates, Nablus soap and other Zaytoun and Palestine Solidarity Campaign produce we had on our stall.
