Be s-careful this Halloween

With Halloween fast approaching in the next couple of weeks, we are issuing some crime prevention advice to keep everybody safe this Halloween!

  • Adults should always accompany young children when trick or treating
  • Please, where possible, only knock on the houses of people you know
  • Keep to well lit areas, carry a torch, wear hi-vis clothing and always remember road safety
  • Eggs and flour can cause damage and considerable distress and can also lead to criminal convictions. Any premises selling these items will be more vigilant and will inform the police.
  • If anyone is displaying the “No trick or treating poster” do not visit the address

Stay safe and be sensible

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 admin@fvca.org.uk 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.

Looking for inspiration, checkout some of last year’s Advent Calendar Windows. CLICK HERE

Vote for the Best Advent Calendar Window

Using a link that will be promoted online nearer the time, vote for the best Advent Calendar window. Voting will take place between 24th and 31st December, the winner will receive a Family Hamper Full Of Festive Goodies, kindly donated by Morrisons…wow!!
