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!

In return, the local council will pay the allowances and expenses of their officers and they’ll have a say in the issues that their local Specials deal with.
