CHRISTMAS IS COMING

The Christmas countdown is on! It truly will be the most wonderful time of the year, as the Sherford Consortium delivers the gift of a Christmas tree - arriving in the local square outside Sherford Vale on 4th December.

The Sherford Trust, Sherford Community Church and Residents Panel will host a Sherford Christmas Celebration, taking place on 16th and 17th December. Expect a Christmas market, family activities, Santa’s grotto, and carol singing around the tree! If that's not enough, Santa will also be riding his sleigh around the town.

Take a look at the plans and put the dates in your diary:
