      Hi Joanne Sorry for the late reply. We are having a Christmas in the Park event on Wednesday 21st December from 4-7pm. It will be in the area around the bandstand and activity centre. It will be a larger event than previous years although still quite a small scale (no fun fair or anything like that). Please see the updated whats on pages for more information.
