Get ahead of the festive season panic and visit the South West London Christmas Fair on 6 November 5-9pm or 7th November 9-3pm, where you will find a wealth of festive treats and extra special gifts to help you create the perfect Christmas.

With more than 80 stalls, including local businesses, selling a range of fun toys, handmade jeweler, clothes, unique decorations and more, it’s the perfect place to get into that festive spirit.

Tickets are available in advance at £10 or on the door for £12 on the Wednesday evening (includes a FREE glass of wine) and £5 for Thursday. Free parking is available.

Confirming that this is the last of these fairs, Di Halford, Chair of the Putney & Roehampton Friends of Cancer Research UK told this website: "We started about 30 years ago it originated at Dryburgh Hall and then went onto the Bank of England. We have over the years made in excess of 1.6 million this includes the fair bridge drives and suppers. Each year we change the cancer that we support as it helps with donations.This year we are supporting Research into Lung Cancer. This is our final fair as we are all getting older and the Bank is being sold so a natural finale".

Like Reading Articles Like This? Help Us Produce More

This site remains committed to providing local community news and public interest journalism.

Articles such as the one above are integral to what we do. We aim to feature as much as possible on local societies, charities based in the area, fundraising efforts by residents, community-based initiatives and even helping people find missing pets.

We've always done that and won't be changing, in fact we'd like to do more.

However, the readership that these stories generates is often below that needed to cover the cost of producing them. Our financial resources are limited and the local media environment is intensely competitive so there is a constraint on what we can do.

We are therefore asking our readers to consider offering financial support to these efforts. Any money given will help support community and public interest news and the expansion of our coverage in this area.

A suggested monthly payment is £8 but we would be grateful for any amount for instance if you think this site offers the equivalent value of a subscription to a daily printed newspaper you may wish to consider £20 per month . If neither of these amounts is suitable for you then contact info@neighbournet.com and we can set up an alternative. All payments are made through a secure web site.

One-off donations are also appreciated. Choose The Amount You Wish To Contribute .

If you do support us in this way we'd be interested to hear what kind of articles you would like to see more of on the site send your suggestions to the editor.

For businesses we offer the chance to be a corporate sponsor of community content on the site. For £30 plus VAT per month you will be the designated sponsor of at least two articles a month with your logo appearing if supplied. If there is a specific community group or initiative you'd like to support we can make sure your sponsorship is featured on related content for a one off payment of £50 plus VAT . All payments are made through a secure web site.
