Not started your Christmas shopping yet? Don’t despair.

You should find presents to suit lots of the names on your list when Southend University Hospital stages its popular annual craft and gift fair on Sunday, November 19.

There will be handicrafts, jewellery, cards, toys and loads more original ideas to have you ticking names off your list in jubilation.

And beside all the stalls, Santa will be coming to town to meet local children and collect their wish lists.

Children’s crafts and games will also be available to help keep little ones entertained while you shop.

Christmas shopping always works up an appetite so plenty of refreshments are available as well as a raffle.

The fair runs from 10.30am to 4pm at The Mill, Bellingham Lane, Rayleigh with a charge of £1.50 for adults (under-16s go free).

As an added bonus, parking at the venue is free.
