The BVS Christmas events were well attended as ever: this year Santa delivered over 100 presents to young Blewbarians (and some not so young)!
Many people play a part in Santa’s Sleigh – an event that makes Blewbury so special. Thank you to Santa, Mother Christmas, Blewbury’s very own Rudolf, this year’s extra-large herd of reindeer, Santa’s numerous elves (responsible for his post office and other technical, safety and refreshment-based support), and the Blewbury Brass Band and Annie’s singers for carols on the Playclose. And thanks to all those who came to receive a present, join in with the singing or just be part of the event.
The Boxing Day Walk also had a great turnout, with lots of groups of all sizes. See page 1 of the printed Bulletin for the full story.
New Year’s Day started with the Roger Cambray Memorial Walk to The Bell at Aldworth, attended by a hardy troop of beer-seekers (and dogs). The live folk music in the snug was thoroughly enjoyed by those who managed to squeeze in!
