Heptonstall advent calendar trail gets under way

Inspired by many villages around the UK, Heptonstall is to host its very own advent street calendar trail!

From the December 1 to the Christmas Eve, December 24, windows in Heptonstall will be lit up each evening, with seasonal themed decorations and art.

Anybody wishing to enter can register their names and addresses, and which day they would like to unveil, at the Post Office. Each day’s window address will be shown the night before in the Post Office window, said Ruth Netherwood, one of the organisers.

“No great art is required, just whatever you want to do to light up Heptonstall. This is not a competition, it’s just for fun,” she said.

“The only requirement is that windows can be viewed from the road or paths to avoid people traipsing in and out of your yard or garden!”
