7th December 2019

Each year Sarah and I are involved in both the planning and the running of the annual Christmas celebration in our local village called ‘Ho Ho Helsby’.

During the day we have various artisan stalls offering everything from grabbing a gin to a visit to Santa’s grotto. We had reindeer, mini ponies, a fun fair you could get into and have a photo taken, a magician, carol singing and local talent on stage and lots of other family entertainment; it was a fantastic day.

From 6pm we have a festive procession which included lots of floats with local school bands and choirs, local sponsors, various classic and heritage vehicles and of course Santa, on his float. KITT was part of the days exhibits and the evenings procession. This year we had some extra special visitors in the form of a gorgeous road train and several of the cast members from Dukes of Hazzard, as well as the usual suspects!
