At the centre Latest news Christmas Fayre 2018 The annual Christmas Fayre run jointly by Dorothy Parkes Centre and Smethwick Old Church was held on 1st December and a fun and festive day was had by all. The day included Breakfast with Santa (special thanks to Sandwell Lions), performances by Zumba instructor Karen Duffy, and music from the children at Uplands Manor Primary School. There were also a variety of stalls, raffle and some festive refreshments. The day raised a fantastic £1,200 which will be shared between the Centre and the Church. We would like to thank everybody who contributed in making the day a success!
