Festive Fairfield

Santa’s Christmas Message

Even though he is very busy, Father Christmas likes to take time out of his busy schedule to visit the children at Fairfield Preschool, to hand out some early presents and to wish children & staff a Merry Christmas.

Unfortunately, due to Covid-19 Santa was unable to visit the children this year. Instead he recorded them a very special video message.

O Holy Night at St. Mark’s

Local singer Mitzy this evening (Thursday 17th December) sung “O Holy Night” at St. Mark’s, our village church.

With there being no village carol service this year, we hope you enjoy this beautiful performance.

Thanks to Mitzy, and to St. Mark’s church for hosting.

Christmas Eve Jingle

Residents are invited to take part in a worldwide Christmas Eve jingle bell event to spread joy after lockdown.

Participants are asked to stand on their doorstep and ring a bell for two minutes at 6pm on Thursday 24th December 2020.

After what has been an unprecedented year due to the Covid-19 pandemic, with people losing loved ones, being separated from family and friends and struggling with the impact of lockdown restrictions, the hope is to bring “magic, hope and togetherness” to communities.

The idea was started by Mary Breggs-Reid, 41, an estate manager from Harrogate. She was inspired by the ‘Clap for Carers’ initiative, along with the movie ‘Elf’ starring Will Ferrell in which characters sing to provide Christmas spirit to fuel Santa’s sleigh.

Properties Taking Part In Festive Fairfield’s Advent Calendar

On the 24 days leading up to Christmas Day a different property in the village will “unveil” a festive display.

As part of your daily exercise, visit the properties and see if you can spot our Advent Calendar window; displays are of various sizes, some in the windows, some on the ground or on the roof. Take photos and share on Twitter @fairfield_info message to www.facebook.com/fairfieldinformation or email admin@fvca.org.uk

Festive Fairfield’s Advent Calendar

This year, Christmas in the village will be very different, with many of our annual activities not taking place.

A suggestion has been received to create a Village Advent Calendar. 

What is a Village Advent Calendar?

On a given date, something festive is placed in the window (or garden) of a property in Fairfield, that can be viewed by people passing by.  The display staying in place until the end of Christmas day.  Examples of displays are:

  • Christmas wreaths
  • The whole Nativity Scene
  • Candles
  • Santa & Rudolf in the snow
  • Winter tree wonderland

How can I take part?

Below are listed the 24 days preceding Christmas Day and the addresses of the properties that are taking place.  Email admin@fvca.org.uk with your address details, the date when you will “unveil” your display and an outline of your display (to reduce likelihood of duplication).  We will then update the webpage.

Then, during December, wander around the village, enjoying the festive displays.

Light Up Fairfield

What a year it has been? You could say it has been very dark. We need to brighten our spirits, so this Christmas let’s “Light Up Fairfield”; this could be by having some outdoor lights, fairy lights in the window or an electronic candle.

From Saturday 19th December, friends and neighbours can wander around our village and, hopefully, “Light Up Fairfield” will lift all our spirits.

Please share your “Light Up Fairfield” photos and spread our Community Christmas Cheer.
