Advent Windows -
Doing well but volunteers still needed…
Many thanks to all those who have volunteered their windows to form part of the Helmdon Living Advent Calendar. The aim is to have decorated and illuminated windows ‘opened’ from the beginning of December so, by Christmas Eve, 24 windows are regularly lit up every evening. We are very pleased that we already have about half the number of windows needed, and delighted that the school will be starting us off with the first one on 1 December.
We are still looking for volunteers. A Google search on ‘Advent windows’ will show you ideas and ways that people have decorated their windows in other villages in the past. There is no need to be religious or arty and there is no ‘theme’, the aim is for each window to be a surprise as it is revealed. We would like to include windows through the whole village and hope to have photos of the windows on the village website and Facebook page.
- live in a house that has a window that can clearly be seen from the street without people coming on to your property
- are happy to keep the window illuminated each evening after it is ‘opened’ until Christmas and
- are interested in participating
please get in touch with Ann Netten (01280 851168 firstname.lastname@example.org) or Jenny Overson (01295 760677 email@example.com).
We look forward to hearing from you.
