The Commonweal Christmas Craft Market takes place at Commonweal School, The Mall, Old Town, on Sunday, 25 November 2012 from 11am until 4pm and will not only showcase gifts, crafts and produce from more than 70 local craftspeople, but will also incorporate a cost-effective confidential legal advice clinic provided by Fullagar Brooks Millikin Solicitors.
For only £10, a limited number of 20-minute private appointments are available with an experienced solicitor from this established Old Town legal practice, representing a saving of up to £60 on the firm’s standard fees. Appointments must be booked in advance by telephoning the solicitors on 01793 777007, or emailing: firstname.lastname@example.org. Fullagar Brooks Millikin is donating all proceeds from the legal advice clinic to The Commonweal School PTA.
Entry to the craft market is free. As well as browsing the 70 craft stalls, visitors to the craft market will also have the opportunity to visit Santa’s grotto, enjoy refreshments and homemade cakes at the café, chance their luck on the tombola, enter a Christmas raffle and enjoy festive music.
“It’s a little unusual to combine a craft market with a legal advice clinic but some people may find the prospect of visiting a solicitor quite daunting,” commented Manil Brough, Chair of The Commonweal School PTA. “By offering legal advice in a private, but more relaxed setting within the craft market, we hope it will encourage people to seek guidance on legal issues which may be troubling them,” she said.
Dave Brooks, a Director at Fullagar Brooks Millikin Solicitors added, “We have many years of experience in assisting local individuals and businesses with property matters, wills, probate and administration, powers of attorney, employment, business, family and matrimonial law. There’s no doubt that the run up to Christmas can become even more stressful if people have worries about legal matters, so this is an ideal opportunity for them to seek cost-effective professional advice in a confidential but informal environment.”
