Christmas Switch On Event 2018

Friday, 7 December 2018

A visit to Santa

The Events Committee met on Monday, 13 August 2018 to discuss the format for this years event. The Councillors had listened to comments received back from 2017 and will be initiating the countdown to the switch on that many had requested.

There will be carols on the stage on Sibson Road Car Park along with Fairground activities and hot food available, instead of the ice rink they have chosen to order a Rodeo Reindeer for the younger visitors and a 'Snow Globe' for photo opportunities.

The Village Hall will be opened at 7pm after the Countdown at 6:30pm on Sibson Road has taken place. In the Village Hall will be:

Santa's Grotto - all visitors will receive a gift for a small charge of £1.

Mulled Wine & Mince Pies - These will be available in the Village Hall from 7pm

Christmas Market Stalls - The Council will be inviting a small number of Christmas themed stalls to set up in the Village Hall. We have limited space and so all requests for stall will be considered on a first come first served basis. For further information on booking your Christmas Market Stall please contact the office.
