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

Surrey in the Great war – do you have a story to tell?

Surrey in the Great War: Oral History Interviews
Surrey in the Great War: A County Remembers is looking to interview
anyone who has a First World War family story to tell.
We aim to record people’s memories and stories about theirs & their
family’s experiences during the Great War and its aftermath. Without
this effort, such memories, which may offer unique and important
historical insights, or record human achievements, might be forgotten
or overlooked.
Did you grow up in Surrey during the
1920s/1930s?
Did your family live in Surrey during the years
of the First World War (1914-1918)?
Do you have any family stories of relatives
connected to Surrey during the war years, and afterwards?
If the answer to any of these questions is yes, we would love to hear
from you! Contact the Surrey in the Great War team via email or
telephone:
T: 01483 518238 / 518239 (SMS: 07779 427527)
E: oralhistsgw@outlook.com
One of our oral history volunteers will soon be in touch.
