This week I have been getting ready for our annual Christmas Lights Switch on in Norden, which is happening on Thursday 29th November. This is always a very popular event and one which I am always pleased to support. This year I will be working with Kate and Becky from Streetwise Magazine and together we will be hosting the refreshments bar offering hot spiced mulled wine, warm Vimto and deliciously festive mince pies, so do pop along and say hello.
The fun and festivities start at 6:00pm along Edenfield Road and there will be carols, entertainment and an opportunity to visit our annual Christmas Gift Market at the bowling club before Santa arrives to turn on our Christmas lights.
Christmas is an especially important time for our retailers and this is a great opportunity to take a look inside some of our village shops and support our local businesses.
I am really looking forward to meeting many of you at the lights switch on and am sure that it will be another huge community success for our village.
