Following my previous thread regarding our village Santa event, it was suggested to me that other grans might like to see what we’re doing. We have events organised for the whole of Advent so I’m going to share a couple of pictures each day. As we’re already on day 6 I’ll do a separate post for each of them along with the event heading. I’ll have to do it as separate posts on the thread as otherwise all the pics will end up at the top with no explanation. Bear with me - once I’ve caught up it will be easier!!

Angels for Advent

Each house in the village received an angel to colour in and display in the window. Other pic is the angel at the parish church

What a lovely thread Katek. Thanks.
I would normally say ‘Cat’ Jane10 but I’m very taken with the dog in its jaunty Christmas hat!

Your community really does have the spirit of Christmas Katek.

The panto stills look very professional. Some high tech people up there where you are!
