As mentioned in the November edition of Community News, all residents are invited to our Community Carol event taking place at St Julian’s woodland on Thursday 15th December at 3pm.

We will be holding a community carol sing-a-long with children from South Marston Primary School. Please park at the school from 2.30pm onwards and walk with the children to Gazebo.

Afterwards, back at the school, there will be mulled wine for adults, a warm drink for the children and a mince pie for all.

We look forward to seeing you there.

Don’t forget that younger members of the village still have time to enter the Christmas Decoration competition! Details here
