St. Leonards Neighbourhood Association


It will be on the 7th December 2019 from 2pm to 6pm as usual.

I think that this is our 10th Christmas Fair, I've really lost count.

I am really grateful to all those who have made it such a success and an 'institution' over the years, the stallholders, the shops, our volunteer helpers and mainly the customers in their thousands, to them all I say a very big thank you. I must not forget to thank whoever it is that is in charge of the weather, we have never had to cancel or even put up an umbrella!

All the 50 stalls were booked up in June this year leaving about 150 people unable to have a stall. I try to ring the changes each year of both the stallholders and the entertainment and I try to keep a good mix of types of stalls. I could fill it with jewelers, street food and Gin bars!

We have booked the Devon & Somerset Fire Service band, La Vie En Roase Jazz band and Exeter School choir. There may be more.

Please come to the fair as a customer, it is really good fun.

This is a project which we have instigated in conjunction with St Leonards Primary School.

On the 17th December 2018 we held the second of these events and the theme was Christmas of course. It is always difficult to fit things into the school's timetable at the end of the Christmas term as well as the diaries of everyone involved, but we had a good turnout and everyone enjoyed themselves.

Hopefully these events will be the start of many such generational links, if anyone would like to be involved in this project at any level please get in touch with the Chairman (see contacts page)



As well as this page we have started a virtual Noticeboard page which will replicate the real Noticeboard  which is situated opposite the shops on the Green. To see the virtual board click here.

Exeter Dissenters' Graveyard Trust

The renovation of the graveyard is nearly complete and it is open to the public twice a month. Open days are shown on our VIRTUAL NOTICEBOARD.

If the gates are locked the graveyard can be viewed through the new iron gates and its history can be read on an interpretation board and a take-away leaflet outside.

The EDGT website has all the news and information.

The Neighbourhood Association would love communities within St Leonards to organise their own street/park/yard/green parties.

The Big Lunch pack has lots of ideas but if you need anything special such as advice on how to close your road or where to find tents or catering equipment etc, or even a bit of financial help, then just ask us.
