A Giant Advent Calendar for West Bergholt

West Bergholt as a Giant Advent Calendar?

St Mary’s Church wants to turn the village into a giant Advent Calendar; do you want to be involved?  In other news, do you fancy sitting on the bench?

To celebrate Christmas and what it means to our community, we would like to turn West Bergholt into a giant advent calendar!  The idea is to use 24 windows around the village with 1 new window being revealed each day. Each window will tell part of the Christmas story.  You can look for a new window each day or save a few and do a trail!

Would you like your house or shop to be part of the village advent calendar? You can use an upstairs or downstairs window providing it is visible to people passing by.
