Every year, local business Natta kindly covers the cost of the very impressive Christmas Tree in the very front of Gurkha Square. A big thank you to Natta!
This year the Christmas Tree will be particularly important as it will be the focus of the Light Switch On at 6.30 pm on Christmas Festival day!
Make sure you are there at the right time to get that special Christmas feeling when the lights sparkle and the magic begins!
Gurkha Square Community Stalls
There are so many fabulous voluntary organisations around Fleet and some of them will be in Gurkha Square including:
Christians Together - Walk through nativity
Fleet Phoenix - Bottle tombola/hook a bag
Church Crookham and Fleet Men's Shed - using their skills to make wonderful wooden Christmas decorations, which can be exchanged for a donation to their so worthwhile cause. They have given so much help to our community and now is our chance to meet them and say “thanks and Merry Christmas!”
Fleet Hospital and Community Friends
All Saints School Association
Tavistock Association of Family and Friends with a tombola/raffle
Hart Football Club with a chocolate tombola
Millers Ark mobile farm
Citizens Advice - Tombola and guess name of giant toy dog
Hart District Council/ Community Partnerships and Projects Team
Farnham Youth Choir
Back by popular demand, we have Miller’s Ark Mobile Farm. The animals will be specially chosen for the event but may include sheep, goats, piglets, miniature donkeys and ponies, rare breed poultry, ducks and geese.
Miller's Ark’s professional staff will bring the sights, sounds and experiences of the farmyard and the magic of the animals to the heart of our Fleet Christmas Festival event. The welfare of the animals is paramount throughout any event and only those happy with a lot of attention are used and no petting will be allowed.
A new addition to this year's Christmas Festival, HARLINGTON BAZAAR - situated just inside The Harlington, along the walk to Santa's Grotto.
Designed for children and teens to enjoy (and maybe buy you a Christmas present or two), this promises to be lots of fun and glitter. Attractions include:
Variety of stalls to browse and shop for Christmas
Hair Braiding and Face Painting
The opportunity to buy super gifts for your siblings, friends - and even your dog. Stalls selling reasonably priced gifts, trinkets, bracelets, keyrings, glow toys, Books, sensory toys, glitter and fairy creations - and so much more.
So make sure to add the HARLINGTON BAZAAR to your must-visit list at the Fleet Christmas Festival.
