Here’s a further chance to get into the Christmas spirit this evening (Sunday 14th December 2014) – there’s the Annual Burntwood Lantern Parade and a Christmas Fayre being held at Chasewater Innovation Centre.
Burntwood Christmas Lantern Parade and Chasewater Christmas Fayre are taking place this evening (Sunday 14th December 2014) from 5pm until 7:30pm, with the Lantern Parade itself at 5pm.
Sharon Whitchurch, chair of Forward Action Burntwood who are organising the lantern parade, said: “We are looking forward immensely to hosting our parade this year.
‘As always, it promises to be a truly magical way to begin your Christmas preparations, regardless of your age. Many people in Burntwood have said that it has become their new tradition and marks the start of Christmas in their house.’
An annual Christmas fayre will take place on December 14 from 5pm, featuring stalls, the chance to meet Santa and take a steam train ride.
At the Fayre visitors can browse a range of jewellery, and crafts from local sellers and children can meet Santa on the day and take a ride on the steam train.
County councillor Mark Winnington said: ‘Chasewater is a great attraction that comes alive at Christmas and I would encourage people to get themselves along and get into the Christmas spirit.’
