Crewkerne Christmas Committee are running a children’s hat competition for Lighting Up Night, with the theme of a Christmas tree. Entry is free and prizes will be awarded for winning entries in two age categories of 0-3 years and 4-8 years. Judging will take place outside of the town hall at 5.55 pm on Friday November 24th. The annual Christmas hat competition was facilitated for many years by the late Jo Hampshire, whose friendly and bubbly personality is still greatly missed in the town.
Other entertainment lined up for the festive evening, includes music with radio DJ Steve Carpenter, Phoenix Brass Band, carol singing, Merriott Majorettes and Santa’s Grotto. Craft stalls will be exhibiting upstairs in Victoria Hall and market and charity stalls in Falkland Square. The event starts at 5.30 pm, with Santa due to arrive in Market Square at 7 pm to switch on the Christmas tree lights.
