Thank you to everyone who has been buying our Thai take away food from the café since it was launched in November.
We want to know what you think about this service and would be grateful if you would answer the following quick questions. This will help us plan for January and February.
1) Please give us feedback on the Thai food that we’ve been selling so far – what you’ve liked and anything you would improve
2) We are thinking of showcasing different chefs in the New Year – we’d like to know which cuisine would be your top choice
CHRISTINGLE CAROL CONCERT AND CHRISTMAS MARKET
We are looking for helpers to set up and put down the Christmas market on Sunday and will pay £10 an hour (one hour setting up, one hour taking down). We will need help from noon to 1pm and from 3.30pm to 5pm.
The Christmas market will include people selling gifts and home made items from 2pm to 4pm on the bandstand, and the candle lit concert will start at 5pm.
Children will be given Christingles (an orange decorated with ribbon, sweets and a candle) to hold from 4.30pm onwards and mulled wine will be on sale from 4pm to 6pm.
The singing will be accompanied by Southwark Wind Orchestra and singers from St John the Divine church. We are very grateful to all musicians from the groups, which have accompanied our carols for the past two years.
The event is funded by the Minet Conservation Association and organised by Myatt’s Fields Park Project in partnership with London Borough of Lambeth.
If you would like to book a stall for the market (one table and a chair) please fill in the form attached to this email. It costs £10 for an adult or £5 for a child’s stall, and you will be provided with a table and chair. Places will be allocated on a first come first served basis.
We would appreciate help setting up and clearing away for the event, and also stewarding during the evening. All volunteers will be given mince pies and mulled wine (or juice) in the depot between 4pm and 5pm to stop them freezing in the time between the market and the carol concert! Please contact me if you can help.

FOOD SESSIONS AT THE PARK
Everyone is welcome to come and along and cook – or just turn up and eat - at our Food Heroes programme this Saturday (15th December).
The sessions are open to everyone – come along and help cook, or just turn up and eat at noon if you want to. You don’t need to be an expert cook, we design the sessions so people can just roll up their sleeves and help with chopping, stirring and eating!
We pay food heroes £40 to teach other people about the food they know and love. No experience is needed and you will be supported by our food manager Fiorella Fronzi during the session. If you are interested in becoming a food hero please contact Fiorella Fronzi via email .
