Christmas in Navenby 2017

 In Christmas in Navenby

As co-chair of the Navenby & Cliff Villages Business Network, along side Luke Daniels, I am delighted to once again be organising the Big Switch on in Navenby village.

If you didn’t make it last year then put the date in your diary, support your community and above all, have a great time!

When: December 1st

Where: Navenby Methodist Church

Time: 6pm

Events: Music from Silver Sounds, the Big Switch on, village trail and late night shopping.

Special Guests: We are very lucky to be able to welcome Flt Lt Jon Bond (Red 2) and Flt Jim Peterson (Typhoon Display Pilot 2018) who will be turning on the lights and meeting some of our younger guests!

Charity Collection: As a thank you to the pilots we are carrying out a collection on the night, donations will be split between the Jon Egging Trust and Navenby School FONS.
