ST JOHN FISHER CHRISTMAS FAYRE: Our charity Christmas fayre is on 10 December in the parish hall.

We are also hoping to involve local shops with their own stalls at the fayre. More volunteers are needed to help with organising the event. We need donations of items to decorate the hall, sell and to fill Father Christmas’s sack! To book a stall and for more information visit our website or contact St John Fisher RC, 48 Thanet Road, Bexley, Kent DA5 1AP. Tel: 07892 800404. E-mail Website:
