Christmas market brings festive cheer to County Hall

Published Wednesday, 16th December 2015

The pan-disability and micro-enterprise Christmas Market brought home-made festive cheer to County Hall this Christmas.

The Christmas Market was organised by William Westwood alongside colleagues and volunteers from the Learning Disability Provider Forum and the Community Catalysts. It took place outside the Council Chamber and in the reception area at County Hall on 30 November.

The market was an opportunity for guests, visitors and staff to purchase a range of hand crafted Christmas inspired items and to learn more about the micro enterprises and various providers of adult services in Worcestershire.

There was also festive entertainment, including bell ringing, Christmas carols and a puppet show, all put on by volunteers and service users.

Cllr Sheila Blagg, Cabinet Member with Responsibility for Adult Social Care, said: "The Christmas Market was great fun and also helped to raise awareness of the vital work performed by micro enterprises and adult service providers every day in Worcestershire. Events such as these show just how effectively providers are working co-operatively to bring fantastic services and events to the county."
