Christmas in Westoning
In view of the current COVID-19 restrictions, the Parish Council regrettably are
unable to organise a community Christmas event this year.
However, there will be a Christmas tree centrally located within the village for everyone to enjoy!
Design a Bauble Competition
We are inviting all children (ages 0-9) within the village
to help decorate the tree with their own handmade baubles.
All participants will see their beautiful bauble hanging on the tree, and prizes will be awarded to the best baubles
in each age category.
Guidelines & Rules:
There will be one winner from each of the following age categories:
up to 4, 4-7, 7-9
Each bauble should be a minimum of 4” high x 4” wide
Each bauble should be weatherproof and finished ready to be hung
Each bauble entry should include name, age &
telephone number
All bauble entries must be handed into Westoning Lower School by Friday 20th November
Be as creative as possible and have lots of fun!
