Carols in the Chapel Friday 21st December 6.30pm

chapel night 2

We are pleased to announce that Bagshot Chapel will be opened for Carols and Readings on  Friday 21st December at 6.30pm. Rev Andreas Sistig has once again kindly agreed to coordinate the service with Valerie, Tina and John. The Chapel is very small and not so warm, so get well wrapped up and come early if you need a seat. We do have a gazebo outside for the overspill!  There will be mulled wine (or juice) and mince pies at the end and maybe the odd the chocolate! Everyone is welcome! Bagshot Chapel is located in the cemetery, which can be accessed by Bagshot Infant School in School Lane.

Christmas Messages and Wishes around the Bagshot Tree

A message from Fairy Nuff – the Bagshot Christmas Fairy!

You may have noticed the tags being put on the fence around the Bagshot Christmas tree. These are Christmas messages and wishes from the schools and various groups around the village – young and not so young! It is still a work in progress, so you too can add a message or a wish. You can pick up a blank wish card from Bagshot Library. Once you have written (or drawn) your message, leave it back there so it can be picked up by one of my helpers.  The opening hours for the library are below.

The wish cards will also be available on Saturday at the short service by the tree at 5pm, which takes place after the Christmas Street Fayre. Christmas songs and Carols will be sung and the tree blessed and lit for the first time.

Everyone is welcome to write a message or make a wish – it really is a wonderful thing to do …..and of course everyone is welcome to come and sing around the tree on Saturday.

Love – Joy – Peace – Hope – Believe.

Christmas Blessings

Bagshot Rocks – Remembrance Display in RSPCA shop

No automatic alt text available.

Between now and Sunday, the RSPCA shop in Bagshot High Street, will be hosting a display of beautiful rocks in their front window. These rocks have been specifically painted  by members of the ‘Bagshot Rocks’ community,  in recognition of the 100 years since the end of WW1. Some of these rocks contain the names of the 50 men, who died during this conflict. 50 men from this small village of Bagshot, who gave their lives so we can have the freedom we enjoy today. The rocks will be carefully moved to the War Memorial at St Anne’s Church for Sunday’s Remembrance Service.

‘We will remember them’.

Thank you to Ella at the RSPCA shop and all the painters at Bagshot Rocks for their time and effort in putting this project together.

An Early Christmas Message from the Bagshot Fairy – Fairy Nuff!

An Early Christmas Message from Fairy Nuff!

Another year has flown by and we are already starting to think about the Christmas celebrations in Bagshot, in fact the tree is already up outside the Coop!

My task every year is to decorate the fence around the big Christmas tree in Bagshot Square. I ask everyone to help me by writing Christmas messages on a special piece of card. I then laminate these carefully, so that your message will not get wet and soggy! This takes a little bit of time and so I have to get started early! My friend Tina has taken the blank cards to the schools, pre-schools, nurseries and the Windle Valley Day Centre, but some children attend facilities outside of Bagshot and we don’t want them to miss out. So, if you would like a card to complete, please send a text message with your address to 07817450373, or an email to events@bagshotvillage.com,  or send a private message to Bagshot Village Facebook page   https://www.facebook.com/BagshotVillage/ . Don’t forget to add your address or a contact number.

Please can I have your cards ready asap so that all your messages will be hanging on the fence ready for everyone to read. ideally by Wednesday  29th November. This is so they can be up and ready for  the Bagshot Christmas Tree Blessing and Light Up  on Saturday 2nd  December at 5pm,  after the Bagshot Christmas Street Market comes to an end.

On your card, you may want to ask for a special wish for yourself or other people or a special pressie from Father Christmas himself, maybe write down a special Christmas memory or even draw a Christmas picture or of the present you would like to see on Christmas Day. These cards are looked at by lots of people in the village, and Father Christmas takes a peek as well, when no one is looking!

Wishing you a wonderful Christmas and a peaceful New Year
