Greenford, Northolt and Perivale Community Federation held a small Christmas Fair market event on Saturday 6th December. There was a local person selling jewellery, a treasure hunt stall, Santa’s Grotto, ‘Time for Change’ healthy eating stall, free diabetes health check vehicle and ‘Rolling Base’ children’s fun activity bus. We also took the opportunity to carry out face to face surveys with shoppers and local businesses and overall the response was very positive with over 116 surveys completed. Most respondents were very keen for a community market and in definite favour for clothes and fashion, arts and crafts and food. Most people (traders and residents) saw the benefits of the market bringing more people into the community, increasing the shoppers and shopping and generally being a fun activity and event for the family. The focus on community groups and themes will make the market more of an event, generate excitement for each market and attract traders and customers to Greenford Town Centre.
