Bourton on the Water Christmas Shopping and Family Evening
7 December 2018
A Christmas Shopping and Family Evening for the locals
On Friday 7th December 2018
I’ve lived in Bourton on the Water now since 2011 (a relative newcomer!) but have experienced Bourton on the Water village on the first Friday of December: a great way to feel that Christmas is well on the way, pick out some presents from the local shops, have a drink or something to eat, and enjoy music and company of those in the village. A real family evening out.
I know a couple of years ago it was flooded with too many people.. but prior to that, it was a lovely evening we could all enjoy. I’m sure many of you feel the same, and I’ve recently seen local people posting on the Bourton on the Water Facebook pages expressing sadness for those days.
Although the Parish Council have said there is no event (http://www.bourtononthewaterpc.org.uk/community/bourton-on-the-water-parish-council-7919/news/christmas-display-2018-22163) I’ve talked today (Sunday 28th October) with virtually all the shops and many cafés in Bourton - and nearly all will be open. A great opportunity for Christmas shopping – not stalls and funfairs, sure, but lovely gift shops, and cafes and pubs.
I'm a deacon at Bourton Baptist Church, on Station Road, and we will also be open and are just pulling together our ideas for the evening, but the plan so far is to have a Family Christmas Crafts area early evening, where the kids can enjoy making something, plus a Nativity dressing up stable area so you can all come and do a ‘Selfie in the stable’... and later we will have some live Christmassy music to enjoy. Mince pies and drinks available.
There won’t be a ‘turning on the lights’ but the Bourton on the Water Parish Council have confirmed the tree will be up and lights on that evening. I’m sure our village will look lovely.
Let’s make this an evening for the local community to enjoy!
Let’s celebrate the start of Christmas!
Let’s make it a family evening the kids will remember!
So – calling all locals! Put the date in your diary to come along!
