Wheldrake Living Advent Trail 2020

The advent season is upon us.  To get us ready for Christmas, the Wheldrake Community is having a living advent trail from 1 – 24 December. People will be decorating their houses, gates, gardens and windows with wonderful displays and lights. Each day leading up to Christmas, one chosen house or place on the map will reveal their Advent display, which will stay up for the duration of Advent. 

Instructions

Collect your map from Wheldrake Church on Thursdays or Sundays between 10am – 4pm from 19 November. Remember to wear a mask and sanitise your hands. There will be a donation box if you wish you to contribute towards this event.  Follow the map and read the clues to find the location and themed decoration.  Complete the sheet provided with the map and drop completed sheets off at 9 Greengales Court.  All correct entries will receive a prize in early January 2021.

Have some festive fun and good luck.

This is a fundraising for Wheldrake Church. Thank you to all the volunteers who decorated the Advent Trail
