Advent Calendar 2021 Results

And the winner is……

There were an incredible 1873 votes cast in our Best Village Advent Calendar competition. The competition, which was a bit fun, certainly got people fired up, lobbying for votes.

Of course some properties got more votes than others, and only one property – the miserable old codger at 10 Pepperwood Close (aka the Chair of FVCA) – got none. Votes for first and second place were very close. The property with the most votes winning a Luxury Hamper courtesy of Morrisons Supermarket.
The three properties with the most votes are:

FIRST PLACE: 55 Stourbridge Road with “The North Pole” 163 votes

SECOND PLACE: Fairfield First School with “The Snowman and the Snowdog” 158 votes

THIRD PLACE: 5 Wood Lane with “Christmas Tree” 117 votes
Well done and thank you to everyone that took part in our Village Advent Calendar. Get your thinking caps on for our Advent Calendar 2022.

Mark the New Year with a Cheer NOT with a Bang

Fireworks near the countryside can be a concern for farmers and pet owners.

Loud noises can scare animals and the waste from fireworks can harm wildlife. Last months fireworks killed one cow in Fairfield and traumatised others.

When bringing in the New Year, remember to Respect, Protect & Enjoy nature.

Thanks for Advent Calendar 2021

Our thanks to everyone that volunteered to part of our Village Advent Calendar.

24 properties created our village Advent Calendar. On the 24 days leading up to Christmas an Advent Calendar was opened, revealing our fantastic display. Thanks to all properties for taking part.

Here are some of these brilliant Advent Calendar windows

Festive Fairfield’s Advent Calendar

Last year, through online promotion, we organised a Village Advent Calendar. The activity was very successful, and we’d like to repeat the activity. 

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 with your address details, your preferred “unveil” date and an outline of your display (to reduce likelihood of duplication – it would be fantastic if we had at least 24 different displays).  We will then confirm your your calendar “unveil” date and update the webpage.

For the Advent Calendar to works, displays must not be unveiled until the stated “unveil” date.

Then, during December, wander around the village, enjoying the festive displays.  We will publish a map of properties taking part in late November, this can be downloaded from this website.
