Festive village

THE countdown to Christmas will kick off in style in Elwick village tomorrow.

The village will be transformed into a festive setting for the Christmas Market Spectacular with various stalls, a Santa’s grotto, and lots of activities for all of the family.

A marquee will be set up on the village green and Elwick will be lit up for Christmas with a light switch-on at 5pm.

The event has been organised by the Friends of Elwick group. This year they are appealing to people throughout the area to go along to the village and join in with the fun.

All of the money raised at the event, which will run from 3pm-6pm, will be handed to St Peter’s Elwick CE Primary School.
