Once again, Wheathampstead came together in true community style for our annual festive light switch on event held on Thursday 28 November 2019.
The event kicked with off with some fantastic singing from the local schools, which included Stevie Wonder’s festive classic, ‘What Christmas means to me’. The lights were thereafter switched on to great cheers and even Santa had the time to join in!
Santa’s Grotto, which was organised by the Wheathampstead Community Group, was incredibly popular and raised much needed money for the organisation.
Despite the rain, feedback from residents was extremely positive, with comments about the tasty pizza and the quirky gifts available from the market stalls.
What a wonderful way to kickstart the festive season!
