Christmas Comes to Starch Green

Join us for all things festive and to turn on the Christmas lights at Starch Green. There will be carol singing with Santa in his grotto, elves and suitably snowy scenes, plus bauble and wreath making, performers, roasted chestnuts and more. The theme is Fire and Ice so expect some surprises!
This year’s event, once again organised in conjunction with HCGA, promises to be another great family occasion so come along! We’d love more carol singers to join the throng. Please email email@example.com to volunteer. The lights go on at 4.30pm.
