Christmas Fun Night – December 5th 2014
The Christmas Fun Night in Chalfont St Peter is organised by Feast of St Peter Ltd and has been a longstanding tradition in the village.
With support from the Parish Council, Feast of St Peter have, once again, arranged for Market Place to be closed to traffic and floodlit for the evening.
Market Place will be closed top and bottom from around 4.30pm to 9.00pm as will The Vale where it joins Market Place. This means that vehicle access to The Vale, Laurel Road, Fieldway etc will be via Lansdown Rd, Lovel Rd/Pennington Rd and Hampden Road. Churchfield Road will be accessible from Church Lane.
Road closed and diversion signs will be in operation and road closure points will be manned.
Lovel End, Robertswood, St Josephs and The Community College will start the evening off with traditional carol singing from a stage outside Budgens.
Spotlight Musical Theatre School, the Gold Hill Vocal Group and the Chalfont Wind Band will be singing and playing Christmas Carols and other Festive Favourites.
A kiddies fun fair will be located in the St Peter’s Court precinct which will be closed for parking from midday.
It is hoped that the majority of shops and businesses in the village will stay open for the evening with many putting on special displays, running competitions and giving away food and drink to customers. The Fun Night represents a fantastic opportunity for businesses and organisations to show off their wares and services and generate goodwill with customers past, present and hopefully future!
Whilst encouraging people to attend the evening on foot, the Church Lane car park will be open all evening.
The event will officially start at 6.00 pm with the switching on of the Christmas Lights and is scheduled to finish at around 8.30pm.
