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
- 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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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.
