Come see our fabulous book tree and get the Christmas fun started with family-friendly crafts, a Christmas book consultant, and a festive book fair on Sunday December 16 (3-6pm) at New Cross learning.

The community-run learning space and library in New Cross is celebrating its second Christmas with a festive book Fayre. There will be:

- A Christmas Tree made of Books
- Mystery book bags for £5
- New and second hand books for sale from 20p
- Book consultant service for advice on those tricky Christmas book giving decisions
- Festive crafts
- A raffle
- Mulled wine and mince pies

"It's going to be a fabulous festive afternoon" said the Chair of New Cross Learning, Gillian Hart. "Book lovers should come to buy our books for friends and relatives. We've got a marvellous selection, and every penny we make goes towards our utility bills - and keeps our learning space and library open!  So it's not just a gift for your friends, it's a gift for the whole community in New Cross."

Entry is free.

The Christmas Fair will follow New Cross Learning's first Annual General Meeting, which will report back on the community-run learning space and library's first year of work and accounts, and elect a new management team.
