Christmas Festival 2018
Our Christmas Festival gives the community an opportunity to come together and celebrate the festive season, not to mention a chance to sample a few Christmas treats and get ahead with Christmas shopping too!
The festive market stalls placed around on the village green offer a huge variety of Christmas wares. Mulled wine, hot chocolate, Christmas wreaths and cakes, locally produced liquors, beautifully handcrafted jewellery, ceramics and Christmas crafts to name but a few, along with a very special Nativity photo booth.
Alongside the market, our amazing local WI group provide refreshments in the Horsmonden Social Club, where the younger children also have the chance to try their hand at some Christmas crafts.
A new event in the HoVEC calendar last year, we are delighted to be organising this a second time along with our festival partners, Friends of Horsmonden School (FoHPS), St Margaret’s Church, the Kindergarten and the Methodist Church who all help to organise and run the market on the day. All four of these organisations will benefit from the funds we raise and this year we are hoping to better last year’s donations to each of £500.
We learnt a great deal from our first Christmas Festival and are already planning this year’s event! If you are interested in getting involved with this event, please email committee member Lisa Gartshore.
