Enjoy a rural Christmas
at the Old Prison
Following on from the successful open day held in August at the Old Prison, Northleach, the Friends of the Cotswolds are organising a rural themed Christmas event to take place on the afternoon of Sunday, December 2 to help raise funds for the Old Prison Appeal.
The event, which will take place between 2pm and 4pm, will see Santa locked up and funds raised to help with his release in time for Christmas.
As well as carol singing around the Christmas tree, kindly donated by Lord Vestey, Patron of the Friends of the Cotswolds, there will be a range of rural skills demonstrations including green woodworking, blacksmithing and wool spinning, plus badge-making for children and music supplied by the Chedworth Silver Band.
Chairman of the Friends of the Cotswolds Simon Randall says, We are delighted with the amount of support that we have been receiving from local people, particularly at our last event which helped us raise over 2,000 from donations on the day plus the very generous recent donation of 20,000 by Grundons.We are hoping to build on this further through our Christmas event plus more events and fundraising activities that we are planning for next year.
The event will start at 2pm and finish at 4pm on Sunday, December 2. Entrance is free but donations will be very welcome.
