Our annual celebration around the Christmas tree was a great success. Comments were aplenty, and all of them good. Even the rain stopped just in time!
My sincere thanks to all of you for the collecting, greeting and compering. I think that next year I will have a break from Santa so that I too can enjoy the occasion.
I must extend a big thank-you to all of the ASET team who helped with public safety.
I am delighted to report that our collection was the best ever, raising £540, which is almost double what we received last year. The Scout Hall committee made £180 with their mince pies & mulled wine, a record for them too.
All in all it was a great community effort attend by well over 500 people. There was a huge crush in the Scout hall afterwards which bore testament to the numbers! Not a sweet wrapper was left on the floor after all had gone.
As they say, 'By the Village for the Village'.
All the best for your Christmas Day.
Ralph Warburton (Chairman ADAS)

Both are foraging for the best on offer, regardless of risk, within limited familiar confines, ignoring the audacity of any law that paints yellow lines on many of its most desirable food collecting areas.The yellow lines outside the Coop are a beacon...
