Post your letter to Father Christmas!

A message from the Elves to the children of Edenbridge

If you’d like to tell Father Christmas about all the kind things you have done this year, you can send a letter via the festive Edenbridge post box. All mail will get sent 1st class directly on the North Wind from Edenbridge to Mrs Claus (because let’s face it – she’s the one that sorts out all of Santa’s admin for him!) Bring your own letter and pop it in the box – perhaps on the way to/from school – or come along to our North Pole Post Office at Edenbridge Market and craft your letter there – a nice little activity for little ones.

The North Pole letterbox will be at the market on Thursday 30 November as well as 7 and 14 December, 11 am to 1 pm.

*Dear Parents – Father Christmas won’t be able to send a reply, but he hopes this activity will bring some festive happiness to the children of Edenbridge.

Visit Edenbridge Market again on 21 December and we’ll have some token gifts to hand out to all our small letter writers that have posted a letter!

Edenbridge Thursday Market gets the spotlight

The Town’s weekly market has got a special shout-out in the August edition of Market Times – a national magazine published by the National Market Traders Federation (NMTF).

In the article, Lorraine Ganney (Responsible Finance Officer for Edenbridge Town Council), talks about the Council’s work to revive the market after the number of stalls had dwindled to just four last summer.

Fast forward to this summer, there are now around 10 stalls each week selling a variety of produce such as bread, fish, cheese, plants and cakes, as well as services such as knife-sharpening and watch repairs. There are also traders like John Beaney – he has been selling his fruit and veg here for the past 25 years and even organised deliveries during Covid. “John’s banter and friendly approach is a big hit on the market, especially among some older shoppers who look forward to buying their veg from him every Thursday,” says Lorraine.

Read the full article: Market Times August 2022 (nmtf.co.uk)

Edenbridge Market is on every Thursday 8.00 am to 2.00 pm at
Market Yard Car Park off the High Street (free parking)

School holiday fun at the market!

During the summer holidays there will be some FREE fun activities and entertainment for children to enjoy as adults browse the market.

Thursday 4 August, 11.30 am – 1.30 pm: Children’s entertainer and magician, including balloon-modelling

Thursday 18 and 25 August, 9.00 am to finish: Face-painting
