|Ivana the prettiest elf at Eastbury Manor House|
Such a lovely start to Christmas celebrations in Barking, Essex with the dynamic Ivana giving us a glimpse of the ancient fire place in this centuries' old Eastbury Manor House. I was invited to sign my new book BARKING AND DAGENHAM FROM OLD PHOTOGRAPHS and what a superb Christmas event was organised by the 'Friends of Eastbury Manor House'!
|Ellen & her family who visited her colourful Christmas gift stall|
It was a great gathering with so people from the local community who came to visit this gorgeous historic building and also sample some of what the stall holders had to offer. Here we have Ellen, whose creative Christmas gifts were so popular, and of course Father Christmas who was certainly king of the grotto. A wonderful day in Barking!
