Preparations being finalised for Milnthorpe's Christmas on the Green event

Preparations are being finalised for this Saturday’s Milnthorpe Christmas on the Green event.

Santa’s grotto will be on the green outside St Thomas's Parish Church and Father Christmas will be seeing the children from 2.30pm to 4.30pm and 5.15pm to 6.30pm.

During that time Milne Moser solicitors will be on the green nearby selling raffle tickets for a donation to the Great North Air Ambulance charity. All prizes have been donated from local businesses.

There will be the traditional lantern procession by the children and then a fancy dress competition with the winners being chosed by this year’s compere, Westmorland and Lonsdale MP Tim Farron.

From 5pm there will be performances from Joey, the choir from Milnrthorpe Primary School, Rigney Bank ballet school, Steve Lashley and an hour-long Christmas set from Quay Change.

There will be resfreshments available and Milnthorpe Primary will also be selling cakes

Oh, how my parents would have loved this, they lived their last days in Ackenthwaite and were stalwarts of Saint Thomas'. I cherish one of the last letters from my Mother which tells of their build up to Christmas and her Christmas pudding making and selling at the markets. Mum's puddings were legendary. We had our ups and downs at Christmas but always our own poultry and Mum's puddings.
