Please come along to our Christmas Festival tomorrow evening at the Community Centre, Wootton Bridge (Friday 13th December at 6.00 p.m.)

The highlight of the evening will be the Roving Nativity Play back by popular demand. Follow Mary, Joseph and the Donkey down the High Street to the Stable near the Sloop Inn and remember the true meaning of Christmas. Please make sure you come back to the Community Centre after to warm up with some mulled wine, mince pies and join in with the Christmas Carols and view the Charity Stalls as well as meeting Father Christmas.

There is no charge but donations would be welcome towards next year’s event.

Hope to see you there

Saturday was bright and sunny from the start, although a little windy as the Parish Council marquee went up. Other stallholders started to appear and soon Wootton Recreation Ground was a hive of activity. Bacon rolls from the Scout building were eagerly awaited and have become something of a tradition. By 2.00 p.m. the crowds had arrived and it was lovely to see everyone enjoying themselves. The ice cream van did a roaring trade as did the bar at the Rugby Club and refreshments at the Scout Hut. The public’s favourite motorbike was a new attraction for this year and we were delighted at the turnout from bikers across the Island. The evening music picnic started at 6.00 p.m. with The Herd leading the bands in the evening. There was music to suit all tastes and as the sun set no one seemed in a hurry to go home. The Village Partnership plan to meet shortly to look at what went well and what could be done better for next year.
