Blue Patch celebrates Christmas 2014

Join us at the Herne Hill Christmas market on Saturday 13th December from 11am – 4pm. Find our marquee next to the Half Moon Pub where we’ll be selling the work of some of our talented designers, putting on loads of fun festive activities and telling you all about the Blue Patch mission! Don’t miss out on our very own singing Green Santa, the Christmas craft corner, and the chance to win prizes from some of our favourite Blue Patch retailers.

Help us create an eco winter scene by turning old magazines and newspaper into trees for our recycled forest. We’ll also show you how to draw your very own green Father Christmas, and you can meet the man in person as he collects your sustainable New Year resolutions. We’ll be picking a winner and tweeting our favourites, so get thinking about how you’re going to be more environmentally friendly in 2015.
