Cheswick Green Advent Windows

We're excited to share with you all what Cheswick Green have been up to this Christmas, read on for their background information about the project. Why not get involved and see how many you can see?

Welcome

Everyone has heard of Advent calendars where you open a door each day in December and reveal a picture – or chocolate!  ‘Advent Windows’ is like this, only BIGGER.  Each day in December a home or business in Cheswick Green will decorate a window/porch for people to view between 5.30-8pm that evening.  So, on 1st December there will be one window by 24th December there will be 24 windows to see.  We got the idea from the Yorkshire village of Saltaire (see www.saltairevillage.info/saltaire_advent_calendar_2015.html).  Each window in Cheswick Green 2017 is inspired by a Christmas Carol or song.  This is not Blackpool illuminations just a bit of neighbourly fun!  We hope that you enjoy spotting the Advent Windows as much as our volunteers  have enjoyed making them.

A Children’s Competition

If you are quick at spotting which window is inspired by which carol/song and you are aged 12 or under we challenge you to join in our ‘Song Spotters Advent Window Competition’!  All windows should remain visible for a few days between Christmas and New Year. Just put the dates in December and the name of the carol/song on a piece of paper (eg.  1st December – Silent Night, 2nd December – Jingle bells etc).  Don’t forget to include your name, school class and a contact phone number.  If you attend Cheswick Green Primary School you may return the form to the school office by Wednesday 10th January 2018 or alternatively post your entry through the letterbox at 72 Willow Drive.The prize will be a local Toy Shop voucher and the winner will be notified shortly after the deadline.
