Corby Borough Council is supporting local small businesses this Christmas and is asking residents to do the same.
The Old Village Retail Group is working with local businesses, community groups and other partner agencies to bring a local Christmas Fayre to Corby this year.
Come along to the Corby Old Village Christmas Fayre on Thursday 29th November from 4-8pm in the Jamb/High Street area where festive fun is guaranteed with music from Go-Ukes, dance displays, hog roasts and children’s rides. Along with all of this, local businesses will have set up stalls selling unique Christmas gifts for all. Local shops around the village, Genevieve, The Cottage Tea Room, Much Loved and the Good Bean Café will also be open for business.
Children will have the chance to meet Father Christmas himself in his grotto and choose their very own present.
This year’s beneficiary charities are Lakelands Day Care Hospice and Integrated Cancer Therapy group who will receive a percentage of the funds raised at the event.
Corby Borough Council’s Lead Member for Housing and Neighbourhood Services, Cllr Bob Eyles said:
‘Corby Old Village offers a very different shopping experience to the town centre, with many unique independent gift stores. The Fayre is also an excellent way to promote and generate community spirit at this time of year by bringing local people together and fundraising for two very worthy causes.’
