Cllr Joanna Parry: Santa over Uttlesford!

Spot Father Christmas flying over Uttlesford on Christmas Eve!

At around 5.23pm on Christmas Eve if you go outside (wrap up warm!) you’ll be able to see Father Christmas’s sleigh* appearing as a bright light in the West-South-West and moving steadily across Uttlesford for four minutes before disappearing in the South-East. What a magical opportunity for those with small children – almost makes me wish mine were little again. And if that doesn’t get them scurrying to bed in anticipation, I don’t know what will. Don’t forget to leave out a mince pie and a carrot for Rudolph!

However or whatever you celebrate this festive season, please stay safe. I wish you a happy and joyous time, with family and friends, good food and plenty laughter. We will be playing lots of games and making sure we don’t miss Doctor Who – what’s your Christmas Day highlight?
