Lavenham gets festive

HUNDREDS of people will be out and about in Lavenham tomorrow, soaking up the festive atmosphere as the village’s Christmas market gets under way.

Last weekend, the Christmas lights were officially switched on to signal the start of a week of festivities.

Lesley Morrison, from Lavenham Parish Council, said: “The lights will be a wonderful backdrop to our Christmas market, starting on Friday evening between 6pm and 8pm.

“Then we have two real reindeers and Father Christmas at our big Christmas fair in the village square on Saturday, from 10am through to 5.30pm.”
