Would you like to decorate a window this Advent?

We are looking for homes, shops, community groups and churches to decorate an advent window and keep it lit between 4pm - 9pm from your allocated date until Boxing Day. We will give you a theme and agree a date with you, then create a list of windows. Then over to you for how you decorate your window! Windows need to be visible from a public footpath in Whaley Bridge.
