Crowds gather for Fest 24

Word gets round quickly "We're all at the Jericho Street Fair"

Street Fair and Run Jericho make for wonderful weekend

Posted - June 09, 2024

Saturday saw a packed Canal Street with more than 40 stall-holders, offering everything from olive oil, to knitware to global justice. Thanks to everyone who made the day such a success, expecially our unflappable JCA Chair, Charlotte Christie, and George Taylor who  organized an amazing collection of prizes for the raffle. Then on Sunday we had the Run Jericho experience, which raised £15,000 for St Barnabas School.
