So I bet you are getting as excited as us now, and we want to give you all the details of Adderley BIG SWITCH ON event on Friday 3rd December in Adderley Village.
Santa and VIP guest Mrs Claus (how honoured are we?)will be jointly doing the inspection of the external decorations at your house starting at 6:00 to make sure there is enough light for Rudolph to see on Christmas Eve when he and Santa bring your presents. So, get cracking with the decorations, and please ask if you need any help with this or if you have an elderly neighbour see if they would like to take part and need any help – its nice to be able to take part. Remember, it doesn’t have to be lights, you could just decorate a window or doorway with something Christmassy.
The Route and plan
The inspection will start from Station Road, go over to Adderley Hall Barns, then down St Peters Close, back along Green Bank, into Meadow Bank, down Rectory Lane to the main road, back along Corbett Drive and onto the Green. Please have your lights on ready for inspection from 6.00pm, the elves will be helping Santa with the inspection.
Then at around 7.00 pm we will all gather on the Green for the BIG SWITCH ON. Once we have duly admired our beautiful village tree we will head into and around the village hall to enjoy some festive mulled wine and, possibly, a hot dog or a burger and rumour has it that the school may have a stall with iced biscuits. (Just keep an eye on the elves though, they do love a mince pie or 5 and they are only really allowed one! )
