Marlpit Arms Christmas Minimarket
The Marlpit Arms is still in the process of restoration but the Christmas Minimarket held on 12th December was a warm and cheerful occasion. Mulled wine was served in the marquee and we were among the local organisations entertained by a folk band. Among the other stallholders were the Friends of Train Wood and Alec Steele, a young Norwich blacksmith, who was demonstrating his craft.
We donated a giant pumpkin and freshly picked vegetables from Marlpit Community Garden which were ingredients in the delicious soup and stews served in the pub itself.
Our sales of nicely presented jams and chutneys made by the GO2 food group brought in £23 towards funds.
