Advent Adventure 2017

During advent, homes around the community are unveiling windows showing Christmas as it has been celebrated in different periods since Jesus’ birth. Each day, all around the village, a new window will be revealed showing Christmas in a different age.

Join the Lantern Launch and Juke Box Carols event on Dec 1st. At 6:30om the Christmas Lights will be turned on at 41 High St. (at the crossroads). We will then process down the High St. to see the first two windows unveilled, ending up at the Baptist Church to sing Carols 161201_sof your choice and enjoy mulled wine.

This year you will find the answer to a quiz question about Christmas through the ages in each window. Each quiz question is linked to the period in history that the window depicts. You are also asked to say where the answer is e.g. top left, on top of…. Underneath, bottom right and so on. There is also a small wooden angel to find in each window.
The answers will be available at the Baptist Church on Christmas Eve 10-12 noon, and also available on-line.
