the Christmas theme the Abbey Wood Craft & Food Market was not as bright and
colourful as the one held in September but you can blame the November weather
for that, but at least it didn’t rain. Nevertheless several stall holders cried
off citing the poor weather. What did they expect? Today’s weather was exactly as November usually is.
Someone who is not put off by the thought of cold feet is Greenwich’s Mayor, Councillor Christine May. She showed up once again and appeared to enjoy herself, parting with a bit of money in the process. She doesn’t know it yet but one of her tickets was pulled out of the raffle box. (Teresa Pearce MP was absent due to Parliamentary duties.)
Without the September sunshine people did not hang around, giving the appearance of thinner crowds but the stall holders said they were very happy with their day and the total footfall was much the same as last time.
The next Market is planned for the St. Patrick’s Day weekend in March 2019.
