LIGHTING UP FULBOURN
The Fulbourn Winter Festival 2020 on 28th Nov 2020 was a GREAT SUCCESS ! On the opening weekend, the village looked livelier than it had for weeks, with people out and about – very responsibly distanced – looking at an amazing display of lit houses and gardens. Over the following couple of weeks, many more homes lit up – and the resulting effect was really festive at a time when so much festivity was denied us! It cemented our decision to make the Winter Festival a recurring event – one where we will hopefully be able to bring you more of what had been planned for 2020.
So – put December 4th 2021 in your diary and we will be looking forward to seeing even more lights around the village. Over the coming months we will let you know what plans are being made – and where you will have the opportunity to get involved.
Whilst the Lantern Walk didn’t go ahead as planned, there is nothing to stop you making lanterns anyway, displaying them in your windows or indeed taking them with you on your evening exercise walks. For some suggestions on how you or your children can make the decorative lanterns, watch this short video HERE (kindly produced for the Festival by Deanna and Clare).
THE WRITTEN WORD
Work is progressing well on assembling the book for our Written Word 2020 project. David Sheppard has been tirelessly reading, designing, editing, and preparing for publication Fulbourn Lockdown Writings – A Village Miscellany. We have received amazing pieces from very many people from a wide age range – so thank you to all contributors. It will be ready for distribution very soon!
