Carols at West Blatchington Windmill
It’s that time again to exercise those vocal chords and sing all your favourite carols. Once you’ve sung yourselves hoarse you can enjoy free hot
mince pies and sausage rolls plus a hot drink.
Then if we are lucky,
Father Christmas, will pop in to wish everyone a very Merry Christmas!
There will be a Raffle with seasonal prizes and a collection will be taken to
ensure that you empty your purses and pockets, with all proceeds donated
to The Martlets Hospice.
Get there early as this is a very popular event and space is limited.
