Foxearth Christmas Tree

The Christmas season got off to a bright start in Foxearth on 7th December with the illumination of a large tree outside the Village Hall . It seemed that most of the community had assembled in the Hall to enjoy¬† mulled wine and seasonal eats when in burst Santa to offer greetings¬† and share with us some of the correspondence he invariably gets. There were requests for a rainbow unicorn that poops ice cream, a plea to ignore a younger brother who thinks “you’re trash”, advice that this year – instead of cookies – you will get vegetables and skimmed milk because you are too fat and a passionate plea for a tennis court to receive the all-weather treatment! Santa thoughtfully parked his reindeer just out of sight where they seem to have been well-behaved although traces were left from which gardeners benefitted!

After this intervention came the ceremonial switch-on with the singing of a couple of carols. We are most grateful to those who kindly gave the tree, made the arrangements and provided those delicious refreshments.
