Window Wonderland!

Thornhill Windows Advent Calendar

As you know there won’t be a Light Up Thornhill celebration this year (boo) ……… but the Thornhill Christmas Fairy (TCT) thought we should try to brighten up the village in another way (hurrah).

So, each day during Advent a different decorated window in the village will be revealed. We hope you will enjoy looking out for these windows as you go about the village.

If you can’t make it to the village you’ll be able to see photos of them at https://calendar.myadvent.net/?id=803cfb0418f116bd4bcf16f25ec1176f
