In this difficult climate no one knows what safety and legal restrictions there will be over Christmas. We don’t want to let the shadow of the Pandemic spoil the holidays and have developed a 4 point plan for a Brighter Perrott Christmas which can be adjusted whatever the regulations.
We hope that you can give this plan your support, some help, or some other ideas.
1) Brighten up your Street
In these dismal days we can brighten up our streets, show the world we’re not downhearted and cheer up villagers and passers-by, with lights or decorations in a window. Why stop there? Lights in hedges, trees or on railings could all be used. Or if you worry about light pollution, door wreaths, or decorations on doorstep plants or trees. You decide whether you’re going tacky or tasteful, couth or chav, Dickens or Disney, stylish or stupendously fun. Any other ideas?
2) Lights on the Tree
There will be a Christmas Tree (kindly provided by the Farm Shop) and lights and decorations on the village green, and Christmas lights in the Village Hall. More news to follow.
3) No Home Alone on Christmas Day
No, not a complaint about TV schedules, but a commitment that no one will be alone all Christmas Day in our village (unless they want to be) If you or you know of someone who will be alone, then whatever the regulations, we will ensure that they see people that day.
4) Christmas on the Green
PLEASE NOTE THIS EVENT HAS NOW BEEN CANCELLED (see news story 22nd Dec 2020)
We are proposing playing Carols and Christmas Songs on the Green on Christmas Eve from 6pm to 7pm with lots of other goodies if allowed. So walk on by and join in, you may be amazed at who you might see!
Remember to Stay Safe and Let’s Be Positive about Christmas, but not in a Covid Way
