The Christmas Fayre was held on the first Saturday in December and despite the damp and dreary weather that threatened to hamper their efforts, members of the Association successfully transformed Wilmar Lodge into a wonderfully festive Christmas Kingdom.
As visitors arrived and made their way through the various stalls, Christmas tunes were playing to immerse people into the spirit of the season. A festive tombola, Secret Santa bags, lucky dip and beautiful winter plants were all on offer to tempt the many guests who attended. A highlight for many had to be the Reindeer Rodeo attraction which saw children and adults take on the challenge in a bid to stay on for the longest amount of time.
A visit to see Father Christmas in his grotto also proved to be a popular choice for many and he merrily chatted away to the children who visited him and gave them a special gift. Games including ‘Pluck a Turkey’, ‘Rudolph Hoopla’ and ‘Hook a Bauble’ were hosted in the Bungalow and craft activities such as gingerbread decorating and making bags of reindeer dust were also enjoyed by many.
It really was a wonderful event and a fabulous way of ensuring the festive spirit at Westholme was definitely flowing. Congratulations to the Westholme Association and to everyone who attended to make it a fabulous family occasion. A staggering £4468.81 was raised.
