It has been wonderful over the last week to be part of so many great community events organised for Christmas.

There was a wonderful buzz at the Caldicot Christmas lights event which was bigger than ever before, the Woodlanders Group drew the community together for a celebration in the park, and the Beechwood Park Group Christmas event on Sunday to name just a few.
