With Ushaw College snow bound and all car parking lost to the elements, the Rival Arts Team pulled off what seemed an impossible task...in just 4 days..... to relocate the Christmas Fair and Snowy to New College Durham. Quite a contrast for everyone.... from the grand historic interior of Ushaw to the state of the art Mall style interior of New College.
It was particularly heartening to receive such a warm stream of positive comments and thanks from the vast majority who were clearly very relieved that the weekend was not completely lost so near to Christmas.
A big thank you to New College too for making the facility available at such short notice.
Colin Caygill and his team wish everyone a very Merry Christmas and a big thank you for your support throughout the year which has helped make 2010 our most successful year to date.
Finally, thank you to Claire Myers, her Mum and all who have given so generously to The Great North Air Ambulance Fund...a worthy cause indeed.
The total raised at the two Christmas Fairs is over £1600.
