Thank you to everyone who supported Tideswell’s special visit from Santa on Christmas Eve. No wonder he enjoys calling here on his way delivering presents round the world at Christmas. He gets a wonderful welcome from children and adults alike with Tideswell Band leading him round the streets on his way to a warm and cosy grotto with plenty of mulled wine and mince pies to keep him (and us) going! The Wakes Committee and their friends work hard to get everything ready for him but it certainly gets us all in a festive mood and makes a great start to Christmas.
We have had now had our first meeting for the year and plans for Wakes 2017 are starting. Our first event of the year will be a coffee morning on Saturday 18th March at Fountain Square Church 10:00 am – 12 Noon. There will be tombola and a cake stall (any donations gratefully received!) and Bernard O’Sullivan will be showing his collection of photographs from last year’s Wakes celebrations. Drop in to reminisce about last year over a cuppa and give us your ideas for Wakes 2017!
