Buckshaw Christmas 16/11/14
Following the hugely successfully Buckshaw Christmas event last year Father Christmas once again returns to the village to take a tour of Buckshaw Village to double check his naughty and nice list on Sunday 7th December between 4pm and 5pm. He’ll be riding through the streets of Buckshaw Village on his reindeer drawn carriage and calling at each of the play parks and Main Square to meet and greet local children! If you miss his sleigh tour, why not head to the full Christmas event held at Buckshaw Village Community Centre from 5pm until 7pm that night.
Join the Buckshaw Village Community Association (BVCA) on 7th December for our free community Christmas Event at Buckshaw Village Community Centre, this year’s event is very kindly sponsored by Wellfield High School, with RMG facilitating the installation of the Christmas tree and lights. From 5pm, a traditional choir will be leading the community in carols around the Christmas tree before the community count down to the light switch on at 5:30pm. James Gwyn-Thomas, minister at Buckshaw Village Church will be on hand to tell us the true meaning of Christmas and then it’s over to Buckshaw Youth Band to play us into the night with a whole host of traditional and more modern holiday tunes.
Father Christmas will be visiting the Community Centre on his sleigh pulled by 'stand-in' reindeers from Groovy Hooves (Rudolph and his friends only fly on Christmas Eve don't you know!) and young and old can join him for a special Christmas story time. The BVCA Bar will also be serving up festive treats to keep the parents and adults warm too, with a range of special festive stalls offering hot and cold refreshments as well as a range of Christmas themed gifts.
The Christmas event is free and all Buckshaw, Chorley, Leyland and Preston residents are very welcome! The money raised at the event will go towards future events and community projects. Working together with Wellfield High School and RMG:
