Our local version, that is! This long-standing, popular pre-Christmas event organised by the Combined Churches of the district takes place on Friday 5th December at Chamberlain Park, Amberley. From 6pm barbecues are available as well as an ice-cream van and coffee cart. Come along and enjoy a picnic, sit back and be entertained by local choirs and music groups, and join in the community carol-singing—get into the spirit of Christmas!
