Shere Goodwill Evening

The aim of the late night shopping evening is not only to celebrate our wonderful selection of shops and get everyone in the festive spirit, but also to raise money for the Philippine Typhoon  Appeal. The Bring and Buy sale will be located in The Forge for the evening.  The Christmas lights will be on, and there will be carol singers, a Shere quiz, and hopefully plenty of festive spirit, so please tell your customers, friends and family so that they can come along to support this very worthwhile event.

Most shops will be open from 5.30 until late, there will be mulled wine and mince pies, carol singing, plus a Shere Quiz (first prize a hamper of sweets from Shere Delights). There will be a giant home-made bring and buy in The Forge (opposite Welcome), so please drop any handmade goodies – either edible or handicrafts - in from 2pm onwards. All charitable proceeds will go towards the Philippines Typhoon Appeal.
