Advent Windows and Christmas Tree Display


To celebrate the run up to Christmas, the Fabric Fund committee is encouraging everyone to decorate an Advent Window.

At some point between 29 November and 24 December, why don’t you decorate a window or windows in your house, ideally a street facing one, with a Christmas theme?

Then as villagers walk the dog, head off to the station or the shop, or just take a stroll they can look out for them; a cheery note in a wintery landscape.

If you’d like, you can take a picture of your window and post it on the Elsenham & Henham Newsline Facebook Group to give people a hint of what to look for and so those who are not able to get out and about can join in.


The Christmas Tree Festival has also moved out the church, due to Covid-19 restrictions.

We hope that you will join in with the festive spirit and display a decorated tree outside your house (any sort of tree or plant, any sort of decorations) for the weekend of 5-6 December. It would be lovely to have a great display of Christmas spirit throughout the village.

Thank you for your participation.
