Well, we’re gonna!
We have finalised the dates for our Christmas events and so wanted to share with you all.
Christmas light switch on
Sunday 3rd December, meet in the hall for 6pm.
The tree switch on is one of the most popular events within the village and really instills a sense of community spirit! Join us in the hall, dressed for the weather & carrying a torch. We will go out on to the green to turn the lights on and sing a few carols – this year we are hoping to be joined by a local children’s choir to help with the singing!
Once the singing has finished we will move back into the hall to warm up with mulled wine and mince pies.
This is a free event funded by VHA funds and family and friends are very welcome.
Family Christmas Craft Workhop
Saturday 9th December 9.30-11.30am (to be confirmed)
Come and make some Christmas cards, decorate your own Christmas eve plate (or mug), make a photo frame as a gift for family and lots more (full details tbc).
This is hosted by The Alternate WI: £10 per family, booking essential – click here for the booking site
Village Christmas party
Saturday 9th December, from 7pm
Residents and their families and friends are welcomed to this informal Christmas party. Bring a plate of food for the shared buffet, your favourite Christmas CD and wear your Christmas jumpers. We will play a few party games, and have lots of fun!
No need to book, just turn up ready to party!
This is a free event hosted by the VHA committee.
Murder and mulled wine
Friday 15th December, from 7pm to late
A festive (adult only) murder mystery night, get dressed up and indulge in our special event hosted by Tall Tale Mysteries
set in Glad Tidings Manor where there’s a body in the library that shouldn’t be there and Lord Jolyon Jape is about to lose his butler permanently!
You will be greated with a glass of mulled wine and mince pies on your table, a finger buffet will then be available at the interval. Following the murder mystery guests are invited to stay on for a bit of a party!
This is hosted by The Alternate WI: Tickets will be priced at £12.50 with a special limited number of early bird tickets available until 30th September priced at £10
Tickets must be booked and paid for in advance – click here for the booking site
Children’s Christmas Party
Sunday 17th December, 3-5pm
We can’t forget the children can we? There’ll be dancing, singing, party games and a Christmas story (or 2)! Unfortunately there will not be a visit from Santa but we’ve been in touch and he’s promised to make a delivery for the children the night before.
This is hosted by The Alternate WI: There is a nominal £1 charge per child which can be paid on the day, but booking required so we can tell Santa how many children to bring a gift for!
