Penton Christmas Festival 2020

The Pentons tried out a new recreational event with the Penton Christmas Festival.  To kick off the ten days leading up to Christmas we enjoyed a distanced lighting-up of the Christmas trees in Harroway and on the main recreation ground.  Everyone was encouraged to decorate their front gardens and homes for the benefit of people taking their lockdown exercise walks. We saw some pretty festively-decorated ponies and held the Christmas Competition for cakes, cards, mangers, snowmen, wreaths, and the best lit front garden/house.

The Church online services of Christingle, Carol Service and Crib Service were featured, and the latter, aimed at a younger audience, notably involved a specially-written play from Alex Randle-Bissell performed by the Penton Players.
