New to Terryglass this Autumn is the pop-up shop this Saturday in Riverrun House Tea Rooms. This project will allow local craftspeople to showcase local wares.

Community links will be developed, which will in turn enable education and appreciation of this generation of producers, thus supporting and safeguarding local enterprise. Customers can enjoy old fashioned leaf tea and an array of homebaking. Food, art, furniture and crafts will be available, displaying each artisan’s originality and creativity. Local producers will be on hand to talk about what they have grown, crafted or created. A host of gift ideas will be on offer and all purchases will be entitled to a free gift wrapping service. Donations in lieu can be made to in the fundraising box for the Autism Centre at Borrisokane Community College.

Meanwhile, the Christmas festive period will begin on Saturday, November 23, and will run each weekend to Christmas. Younger people can post their Santa letters in a dedicated letterbox at Riverrun House. These letters will travel by special envoy to the North Pole where the elves will sort the addresses for Santa and then help him with the replies. There will be also a range of art activities to keep little hands busy.
