Dear Greenmount Community,
As the Christmas Season is fast approaching, members of Greenmount United Reformed Church and other members of our community have been busy decorating Advent Windows. From the 1st December, as you walk around the village you will begin to see the streets brightening up with displays of various themes from the Twelve Days of Christmas to A Winter Wonderland.
Attached to this email you will find a map with the addresses of 24 houses where you will find a decorated window display. When you follow the map, look for the Angel in each of the numbered windows and find the letter attached, then record it on the sheet provided. Copies of the map are also available in the plastic containers outside church and the Old School.
We hope that you will not only enjoy looking at the windows, but that you will be inspired to decorate your own window so that across Greenmount we celebrate this Christmas with light and joy.
Throughout Advent there will also be a few stalls selling goods. This will take place on Saturday 5th and Saturday 12th of December between 10am and 1pm. The stalls will consist of:
- Heart Art who are selling handmade textile products which can be found at Number 1 on your map (8 Whitebirk Close).
- A Christmas Decoration stall can be found in the yard of The Old School and any unwanted Christmas decorations
can also be donated to this stall.
- Home Made Goodies can be bought from a stall in front of the Church.
- Hand crafted wooden Christmas Decorations which will be on sale at Number 14 on your map (7 Chisholme Close). All proceeds will go to our village’s Men’s Shed Group who have made the products. There are a selection of items for sale which can be ordered when visiting the stall any day throughout the whole of Advent.
We hope that this event, and many more activities which are being planned for you throughout December, will help in some way to brighten what has been a very difficult year for us all. Please support this event organised by volunteers who work hard to make Greenmount a wonderful place to live.
Wishing you a Joyous Advent
