Sadly, Ruddington Village Centre Partnership (RVCP) has had to take the difficult decision to cancel the 2020 Christmas Market and Fayre, which was due to take place on Saturday 28th November.
However, RVCP are keen to use the National Lottery funding they received for the event to fund a spectacular Christmas lights display instead. The Parish Council has agreed to contribute as well.
The agreed scheme will see the trees around St Peter’s Rooms wrapped in beautiful warm LED lights, both static and twinkling. Some trees may be lit in ice white or multicoloured lights to add variety.
The larger trees will also feature warm white star motifs, each of which will have twinkling string lights leading down to the ground and then feeding into the decorative scheme below, or shooting to the side of the stars. (The effect should be similar to that pictured below.)
The annual Christmas Tree Scheme and Christmas Window Decorating Competition will be held as usual – and the company providing the Christmas lights has undertaken to work with our local business owners to plan additional, appropriate decorations for the trees around St Peter’s Rooms.
So, whilst Christmas will be a little different in Ruddington this year, we can still look forward to some fantastic festive decorations to raise some seasonal cheer.
With thanks to Mark Pinks and the Ruddington Village Centre Partnership
