Beachmere will be one of the few communities taking advantage of some collective festive spirit when Clayton Park hosts the Xmas Bazaar and Community Carols.

Organisers Beachmere Area Network Group (BANG) say the regular Carols event has been revamped and will focus on entertainment, craft and gift stalls and some big surprises.

Covid restricted regular practice sessions by the usual choir, so local singers will be leading the community in carols with local band, Boom Baby, providing additional entertainment.

Market stalls will sell a myriad of arts, crafts and gifts allowing locals the opportunity to shop local whilst supporting local artisans and suppliers who have had a “lean” year with a reduction in regular events.

Recently established community group, Beachmere Classic Vehicle Club, will join in with several of their member’s classic vehicles on display.

There are still vacancies for art, craft and gift stall holders and BANG would welcome any interest from singers wanting to lead a carol. Email for further information.

And if you just want to join in on the day, visit Clayton Park in Beachmere between 4pm and 7pm on Saturday, 5 December.
