Christmas arrives in Havering in earnest this weekend, when two tight-knit communities host their annual festive fayres.

There will be a chance for everyone to get well and truly in the yuletide spirit at Rainham Village’s Christmas Fayre from 10am to 4pm

A whole host of tribute acts, Irish dancers and majorettes will have everyone feeling jolly, and Rainham Hall will also be open for all participants to try their hand at some free arts and crafts workshops.

The Mayor of Havering will be attending the Rush Green community centre’s Christmas Bazaar at the centre in Rush Green Road, Romford, between 1pm and 4pm.

Residents will be able to enjoy a whole host of Christmas activities, with a wide variety of home made gifts on offer alongside themed children’s games a bountiful offering of lovely festive foods.

There will even be a chance for youngsters to meet Father Christmas, and of course have their faces painted.
