Window Wonderland

An Ebberston advent calendar with a twist


 Although we are not yet able to organise any face to face events, Ebberston village hall committee are keen to arrange a Covid-safe alternative event in the run up to Christmas.

Our plan is for residents to make a colourful festive, Christmas or Winter themed display in a front window (or house or garden or door step 🏡 – which many of you will do anyway) which can be seen as residents walk around the village . Each household would be assigned a date 📅 which would be the day their display goes on show, the idea being that there would be something new to see every day, from 1st December onwards. We will create a list (on the noticeboard, on the village website and the Facebook group) to show where there will be something new to see each day.

Getting involved would be free of course and everyone is welcome to take part – it won’t be limited to 24! Displays can be on window sills or in your front garden. They can be as big or small, as low key or as funny and adventurous as you like, from door wreaths to fairy lights to full displays. As long as it’s family friendly you’re on to a winner. It would be up to residents to decide how long their display lasts but we hope you can be persuaded to keep your display up until the big day itself.

Do you want to get involved? Email info@ebberston.net or contact Judith Winters, Sarah Walker or Lynne Hall by 20th November. We don’t need to know what you are planning – we just need to know your address/location in the village and a “title” or some sort of clue to your festive display (or where it will be). We will assign you a date once we have an idea of numbers, after 20th Nov.

Let’s see just how inventive, creative and Christmassy 🎄 Ebberston can be!
