East Leake was buzzing with excitement last Saturday in anticipation of the big Christmas lights switch on and the arrival of Santa Claus!
The rain did little to dampen the Christmas spirit of the Village and John German opened their doors to offer respite from the weather with a warming cup of festive cheer in the shape of a hot chocolate with all the trimmings.
Local artist and author Melissa Hemmings also joined us for the evening and, to help with our fund raising for Treetops Hospice donated a signed copy of her children's book 'The Krankpotts come to Loughborough'.
We also held a raffle and are pleased to announce the winners are:
Brian Blackmore – Champers & Thornton Chocolates
Linda Potts – Picture by Melissa Hemmings
Judith Cooper – Signed book by Melissa Hemmings
Thank you to everyone that popped in to join us, we raised a fantastic £83.34 for Treetops Hospice on the evening.
"All members of the Uttoxeter office were helpful, pleasant and professional at all times. They made us feel at ease throughout the whole process."
