This morning was a chilly one with temperatures hovering around freezing point. We didn’t expect that after a mild November for the most part and a tropical October. Now is the time to think about preparing for the winter.
Have you thought about getting kitted up with a big winter coat, gloves and hat to keep warm this winter? It’s also worth checking out your car to make sure the tyre pressure, battery and headlights are OK. I went to Halfords the other week to have a front light replaced and found the pricing and service very reasonable.
Most of the Christmas lights in Medway are on now with Chatham Chritmas lights starting the trend followed by Strood Christmas lights, Gillingham Christmas lights and I opened Hempstead Valley’s Christmas Grotto over the weekend. Still to come the fantastic Rochester Christmas lights and Dickens Christmas Market and Rainham Christmas lights this Friday.
Today I was at Hempstead Valley Shopping Centre for the official opening of the Christmas Grotto.
It’s a magical experience for the kids with a festive 15 minute film of Rocket the Reindeer and friends. The 3D glasses really bring everything to life on the big screen inside the Christmas grotto. After there’s a meet and greet with Father Christmas for each and every child and he’s got a sack full of presents too!
Thank you to Mark, Su, the snow queens and all of Santa’s elves and little helpers for making today so special. Read more about the 3D cinema experience & visit to Father Christmas’ Grotto.
