Plans for Christmas

Lantern Procession

Planning is underway for Christmas in Saxmundham, taking place on Saturday 3rd December 2016.

We are hoping to repeat the success of last year with stores staying open late, the Lantern Procession from the Church to Fromus Square followed by carols accompanied by The Band of the Royal British Legion Leiston. Santa’s Grotto and hot food available as we await darkness for the switching on of the lights.

Can you help?

There was a large number of people who joined the Lantern Procession last year and even more lined the High Street for the ‘switch on’. We’re looking for more volunteers to guide the procession across Church Street and on the High Street. If you can give us a hand please let us know.

Christmas Lights anyone?

Last year the blue LED lights were replaced by white ones. If you would like to purchase the lights, get in touch. If you are a charity, we would be happy to offer them free of charge.
