Christmas creativity for children in Moreton-in-Marsh

Events, Features by Adam No Comments »

Get creative this Christmas in Moreton-in-Marsh with the Corinium Museum’s Outreach Service.

Outreach Officer, Helen Arbon will be holding a ‘Festive Fun’ workshop at Cotswold District Council’s Moreton Area Centre on Thursday, December 20th.

Suitable for 7 to 12-year-olds, ‘Festive Fun’ is a creative, art workshop with a Victorian theme from 2.30pm to 4.00pm.

Children will have the opportunity to make Victorian style cards and decorations for their Christmas tree – just in time for the festive season.

There will be plenty of sparkle on offer, with gold and silver paper, sequins and glitter as well as doilies, coloured feathers, tissue paper and other art materials.

Spaces are limited, so to avoid disappointment please contact the Moreton Area Centre on 01608 650881 to make a booking.

The workshop costs £4.00 per child or £2.00 for annual season ticket holders or Friends of the Corinium Museum.

The spirit of Christmas in Campden

Chipping Campden Bulletin, Events, Noticeboard by Adam 1 Comment »

The Spirit of Christmas fund raising evening will run from 4pm till 8pm on Tuesday 4th December encouraging people to raise funds for charity while enjoying the traditional spirit of Christmas with festive stalls, Father Christmas, carol singers and a nativity tableau to name but a few of the event’s attractions. Our fundraising events will include the Rotary Club tree of light, an indulgence tree, pony and trap rides, a prize draw and cracker trails.

The event will open with Father Christmas traveling from the Guild in Sheep Street at 4pm and there will be entertainment throughout the evening, the length and breadth of the High Street including our own Morris Dancers, a living nativity tableau, carol singing, North Cotswold Community Radio, drumming by Year 6 from St. Catharine’s School Come and enjoy mulled wine, a pig roast, hot dogs and stalls selling seasonal produce including wreaths, lavender gifts, old fashioned toys, and much, much more.

Enjoy a pony and trap ride from the Guild to Court Barn (or Court Barn to the Guild) then take part in the children’s or adults’ cracker trail, visit Father Christmas, win an amazing prize from the indulgence tree or enjoy Playbox’s seasonal production. Don’t miss Nell Gifford and her husband Tito, both of Gifford’s Circus, who have kindly agreed to attend the evening and to help us with the switching on of the lights.

Programmes with a full listing of events and locations will be on sale from mid-November and every £1 paid for a programme will go directly to the Luke Jeffrey Memorial Trust (Regd. Charity No. 1120375). The programme contains a form for free entry into a prize draw (be sure to fill this in) and a form for the Rotary Club’s tree of light.

Proceeds from the Spirit of Christmas fundraising activities this year will be going to the Luke Jeffrey Memorial Trust. The Luke Jeffrey Memorial Trust is a local charity set up in memory of Luke Jeffrey – a fifteen year old swimmer and an Olympic hopeful who tragically lost his life in a swimming accident last year. The fledgling Trust’s first project is to initiate a UK awareness campaign in water safety through production of a national curriculum linked DVD to be circulated to every primary school in the UK. At a regional level, the charity is providing bursaries and scholarships to help children make the leap to competitive swimming and is sponsoring and promoting a mentoring scheme for young swimmers. The charity’s initial target is to raise £20,000. Let’s help them do it!

This is a great opportunity to complete all your Christmas shopping in a single trip, as the vast majority of shops in town will be staying open until 8pm, while raising funds for a very worthwhile cause. We look forward to seeing you on 4th December!
