December in Chadlington
Recent sharp frosts and brilliant winter sunshine signal that the festive season is almost upon us. Christmas trees and lights brighten the dark evenings and many opportunities to get ready for the seasonal celebrations are available to all in Chadlington.
There’s no need to travel far to find the gifts and festive fare you need for a very special Christmas. In fact, as Cafe de la Post has now launched its on-line ordering and delivery service, you need not move from your fireplace to do some Christmas shopping, just go to www.cafedelapost.com
Chadlington Quality Foods has an impressive array of festive food and drink gifts and groceries, arrayed beautifully in their newly refurbished shop and Slatters the butchers will make sure that you have tasty, locally produced meat for your festive table. Just decide what you need and order early to avoid disappointment.
St Nicholas’ Church’s Christmas Coffee Morning on 3rd December has an important fundraising purpose this year, which is important to all village residents, because the Cemeteary path is in need for urgent repair. Please support this local cause by coming along to enjoy a chat with neighbours and friends, buy seasonal treats and make a donation to repairing the path – every little helps.
Enjoying the festivities in the village includes the traditional ‘Carols on the Stocks’ on 8th December, followed by a one night only warming Chilli meal at the Café. The Tite Inn has the Xmas Quiz on 4th December, when the Cherry and Whites will defend their title. There will also be a New World Christmas Concert by the Wychwood Chorale on 10th December. And then, just when you think it’s all over, take an antidote to the festive indulgence and spending too much time indoors with participating in the Great Brook Run on 28th December, or at least join the crowd cheering the runners on.
Information on all these activities, and more going on outside the village this December is on the Events Calendar. If there isn’t anything for you….bah, humbug!
