WELCOME TO CHESWICK GREEN ‘ADVENT WINDOWS’!
Everyone has heard of Advent calendars where you open a door each day in December and reveal a picture – or chocolate!‘Advent Windows’ is like this, only BIGGER.Each day in December a home or business in Cheswick Green will decorate a window/porch for people to view between 5.30-8pm that evening.So, on 1st December there will be one window by 24th December there will be 24 windows to see.We got the idea from the Yorkshire village of Saltaire (see www.saltairevillage.info/saltaire_advent_calendar_2015.html).Each window in Cheswick Green 2018 contains a main festive item/s beginning with 1 letter of the alphabet (except X,Y & Z which are in one window).This is not Blackpool illuminations just a bit of neighbourly fun!We hope that you enjoy spotting the Advent Windows as much as our volunteers have enjoyed making them.
A Festive Competition
If you are quick at spotting which window is inspired by which letter of the alphabet we challenge you to join in our ‘Christmas Alphabet Competition’! All windows should remain visible for a few days between Christmas and New Year too. Just put the dates in December and the letter of the alphabet on a piece of paper (eg.1st December – W, 2nd December – B etc). PLEASE NOTE-1 LETTER WILL BE REPEATED AS THE SCHOOL WINDOW IS DISPLAYED AT THEIR SCHOOL FAYRE ON 30th NOVEMBER. To enter include your name, school class (if applicable) and a contact phone number on your entry.If you attend Cheswick Green Primary School you may return the form to the school office by Wednesday 9th January 2019 or alternatively post your entry through the letterbox at 72 Willow Drive. You do not need to have every answer filled in to enter.The entrant with the most correct answers will be the winner. A prize of a local Toy Shop voucher will be available to children aged 12 and under and the winner will be notified shortly after the deadline.Adults just have the fun of taking part!
