December Chair Letter: Festive season events!

Dear Parishioners of Bubwith, Breighton and Willitoft


As we hurtle towards the festive season there are a number of events to note for your diary, particularly if you have children or grandchildren. 

The Friends of Bubwith School Christmas Fayre will take place on Sunday 26th November and it looks like it’s going to be a lot of fun with great stalls and a great raffle.  A children’s quiz night is planned to take place at the Leisure Centre on Friday the 8th December, this is a recent venture to add to the social events for children in the village, for details see the Leisure Centre website  


A Christmas Santa Run for Children and Adults has been organised to take place at the leisure centre track on Sunday the 17th December at 1pm. All profits will go towards the new playground. The bar will be open and there will be mulled wine and other refreshments on sale. I’m really looking forward to seeing how creative people are with their Christmas themed running outfits.

Carols around the Christmas tree will take place on the green on the evening of the  17th of December with a welcome invitation from Richard and Shirley Moore to all to have mince pies and mulled wine at Chain Bar House after the carols. 

Finally, there will be a quiz night on Christmas Eve at the leisure centre when all are welcome. 

Our community is blessed with many volunteers who give up their time to support others, they organise village events, run groups and fundraise to gain improvements and new assets and facilities for our village. The Bubwith Leisure and Sports Centre  Committee has agreed to run an event on the afternoon of Sunday, 7th January to celebrate and thank the many volunteers within our community. The tricky bit of arranging such an event is identifying who our volunteers are and I hope to gain your help with this. Volunteers don’t always blow their own trumpet so if you know of anyone you believe we should invite or if you’d like to come along please do drop me a line on my email below. I look forward to hearing from you. 

Thank you for your kind attention.  

Best wishes. 

Sandra Hills, Chair of Bubwith Parish Council 

I’m always glad to hear of concerns and issues.
