Local favourite The Phoenix, Rainham, is spreading Christmas joy this year by bringing the community together for some fun and festive cheer with a variety of festivities.


Community is at the heart of The Phoenix, and they are the driving force behind the spectacular events they will be hosting this Christmas, including a Christmas fete with local businesses, a kids Christmas party and a Christmas light switch-on.


On Saturday 2 December, The Phoenix will host their Christmas light switch on right after the Rainham light switch on. An event not to be missed, the Rainham community will be transported into Christmas wonderland, with a Victorian-inspired carol service, singing all the classics, plenty of mulled wine and a snow machine which is sure to entertain the whole family.


The Christmas entertainment does not stop there, as on Sunday 3 December the pub will be welcoming everyone in Rainham for its Christmas Fete. Guest can expect to see a variety of local businesses showcase their products and services on stalls, displaying products from local honey to clothing and handmade candles.


To round off the Christmas celebrations, The Phoenix is hosting a kids Christmas party on Saturday 16 December, and will feature a Christmas card-making station, a disco for all the little ones to enjoy. Not to mention, there will also be a surprise visit from Father Christmas who is even bringing the kids their own special gifts and much more!


Operator of The Phoenix, Cathy wanted to involve local businesses in her events and festivities leading up to Christmas as she is extremely community-focused, having previously held community events including raffles and fundraisers.


Cathy has gone the extra mile for her Christmas plans and been able to get her local councillor and MP involved in the celebrations, who are eager to help Cathy in any way they can.


Cathy said: “I am delighted to be holding a range of festive events in the lead up to Christmas. We want The Phoenix to be known as a community pub and by hosting these festivities, it brings the locals together. The rest of the pub team have also been very involved in the planning and organising of these events and seeing their enthusiasm towards the community is heart-warming. We can’t wait to see everyone at the events, they are going to be a lot of fun!”


The Phoenix also hosted a charity coffee morning in aid of Macmillan on Saturday 7th October where there was coffee, cake, and prosecco for everyone to enjoy while supporting an incredible charity. A total of £960 was raised with the community raising £460 and Cathy generously donating £500. Local Councillor Jaqueline McArdle was also in attendance to show her support.
