To the villagers of Ilmington, we’d like to invite you to join us on 5th December at 4.30pm by lighting up your windows and gardens with advent candles, Christmas decorations, or even just switching the house lights on! Although we can’t meet up for carols this year, we will be taking a moment to reflect on a central theme of the season and together shed some light in the darkness.
At exactly 4.30pm, we’ll be lighting up the Ilmington Community Shop Christmas tree – and we hope you’ll light candles in your windows or maybe deck the front door with fairy lights.
All day on Saturday 5th December, we will serve cups of take-away mulled wine, hot if you prefer, or cold to warm up at home. Or you can buy mulled wine from us by the bottle.
Then maybe take a stroll through the village to enjoy Ilmington’s display of Lights in the Dark. Listen carefully and you should hear the sound of church bells…
