Christmas in Barton – Thank you!

Dear Barton Residents,

It was lovely to see so many of you brace the cold and join us for the annual turning on of the Christmas tree lights on the 2nd December. A huge thank you to Barton Primary School for providing the lovely backdrop of carols for the event, Santa Claus for bringing the ‘magic’ and the kind volunteers in the village for providing the warm refreshments and mince pies for everyone to enjoy.

The day bought wonderful Christmas cheer. Thank you to everyone who generously offered donations on the day. The money collected will be put towards the fundraising effort for the purchase of the cricket nets on the Recreation Ground.

For those who have been out and about will notice Barton is looking very Christmassy with different snowpals lining the streets. We have snow angels, snowmen (standing, falling, one iconically flying) and a one and only Snowbi-Wan Kenobi on display. It is not too late to join in with the fun as we head into the week before Christmas. Feel free to bedeck your front garden, window, tree with your own snowpal. No rules apply – you can be as imaginative as you like. Any households who would like to feature on the Snowpals Map, please drop a line to .

I will leave you with a ‘taster’ of some the creative snowpals we have in and around the village in the attachments below. We hope they bring you all much joy as this December.

Our best wishes

The Barton Christmas Spirit Committee
