As Christmassy lights start to twinkle throughout the village, last night, after a blessing by our vicar, Heather, the tree on the Bogbean was lit up for the festive period.
Well done to 1st Goostrey Scouts, sponsored by the parish council, for organising it all once again. Residents enjoyed rousing Christmas carols from the Rode Hall Silver Band while enjoying warming mulled wine and hot dogs as well as buying yummy cakes and biscuits from the Guides.
It was a lovely start to the build up to Christmas and Father Christmas was obviously the star of the show for many of the village children eager to meet him.
