Wakes moves onwards and upwards in preparation for 2016

Planning for Wakes 2016 is due to commence including our 70th anniversary year!! Definitely a year to take part in all the fun!

The AGM was held on 05 November which saw a few changes to the committee line up and some new additions to the wakes team. Thank you to those who attended and continue to support Tideswell Wakes Festivities.
Liz resigned as chair following her hard work over the last last 3 ½ years. I have now stepped up to the role of chair and will be steering the ship from now on! Liz remains an active part of the committee and I know I can rely on her advice and support as I take on this new role.

We welcome our new Secretary, Julie Nuttall who will bring organisation and wakes enthusiasm to the team as well as two new committee members; Cathy Swann and Denise Dupont….Well done and thank-you for volunteering!! All the current committee members have remained on the team and Gillian White continues her role as Treasurer and John Hallows as Vice.
I would like to thank the present Wakes Team for all their hard work in planning and delivering the fun filled Wakes week for us all to enjoy 🙂

So on to Christmas festivities….Santa has confirmed his visit to Tideswell again on Christmas Eve and has taken time out of his very busy schedule to lead our parade down to the grotto as he enjoys it so much. The Parade will leave the George Inn at 5:30 pm but please feel free to come along to the Nativity Service in Tideswell Church at 4.30pm or join us outside the George before to help us all get into the Christmas spirit. Santa’s grotto will be open at The Institute (behind Tideswell Church) from about 6pm with refreshments and music from the band. Tickets cost £1.00 and are available from Tideswell Post office from December. To help Santa ensure he has the the right presents we just need to make a note of your child’s age and gender when you buy your ticket.

We hope to see you all there and look forward to Wakes 2016
