On Sunday 3 December a large group of villagers, including some new residents, gathered for the traditional switching on of the village Christmas tree lights. With thanks to Paul Lake for leading the singing; Graham Smitheringale for sourcing the tree and putting it up; Fred and Jamie Morton for attaching the lights; Pat Johnston for sorting the lights and Les and Jackie at Pond cottage for allowing us to use their electricity.
Afterwards we received a warm welcome from George at the Golden Pheasant who had the mince pies and mulled wine waiting for us.
Have you seen the reindeers with flashing noses in the goat yard? They really are very splendid. Well done Graham and team!
We also have a lovely Christmas tree in the church. Rose Bain’s family donated the decorations to the church and this year Austen, who now lives in Rose’s old house, helped to put them on the tree.
