Aldershot Christmas Fayre

Aldershot Christmas Fayre, a couple of fairground rides obstructing the street, Rotary Club trailer blaring out distorted music, a stage with people who could not play, a coffee stall, and the streets deserted.

The streets are always deserted in Aldershot, therefore nothing new.

No publicity for the Christmas Fayre if that was what it was.

I saw no one buy from the coffee stall, and those manning it looked bored stiff, or maybe they were merely frozen stiff.

On the stall, one whole section occupied by KeepCup. Now I have nothing against KeepCup, if it cuts down waste, 2.5 billion throwaway coffee cups every year, though it is addressing the symptom not the cause, and it makes some sense if a coffee shop is selling KeepCup and offers a substantial discount on takeaway coffee if used by regular customers, but what use a stall that will not be seen again?

In the summer there is a music festival, it too is poorly attended, lack of publicity, people who cannot play.  The Christmas Fayre, if that was what it was, more of the same.

If wish to enjoy a Christmas Market then visit Winchester Cathedral Christmas Market.
