...And To Think Just 2 Weeks Ago,
(seeing so much Christmas activity in the shops),
I Was Saying,
"It's a Bit Early For All That Isn't It?"
And now ..well, you'd better get your cards mailed quickly before you miss the last post! Why does it always happen so quickly??
Like most people I love Christmas time but I'm one of those people (confession) that doesn't usually get excited for Christmas too early - I don't buy a Christmas tree until at least 18th December, and then of course the best ones have usually gone!
I always leave my shopping too late (typical bloke) and then start to panic like dear old Corporal Jones! (RIP).
So I admit I'm probably not best qualified to advise 'Don't Miss Out On The Christmas Events', but this year I'm going to try to take my own advice, and get better prepared and pay more attention! (famous last words!).
On the bestof Corby, we are busy trying to showcase all the events leading up to Christmas, and we encourage anyone to add their own events in good time and don't forget to look out for all the special offers, Christmas lunch venues, parties etc.
See where to catch Santa before he moves on (he's pretty quick you know!), and make sure you make it a Christmas to remember!
There's loads to choose from, but if I was to pick out just a few:
Santa's Winter Fun Day - promises a great day out for all the family at East Carlton Park on Sunday 9th December.
Grisly Tales From Tumblewater - daily shows at The Corby Cube from 12 - 15 December.
Bradbury's Butchers - place your Christmas order now and enter Gavin's prize draw with a chance to win £1,000 worth of meat for a year! He also has great hamper offers.
D&L Hadden Butchers (Old Village) - also great offers and don't miss out on David's (famous) New Year Pies!
There are loads of great Christmas lunch menus to choose from for parties etc , all now being served:
La Fonte Italian Bistro
A Tasca Portuguese Restaurant
The Green Dragon Pub, Brigstock
Ali Indian Restaurant
Shire Horse Pub
Strides of Studfall
In next week's newsletter, I'll reveal a few more, so please share with me any special events you know about. In the meantime, keep checking the 'event' tab on The Bestof Corby!
So please support your local businesses this Christmas, and have a great festive time! It's not just about the kids you know!
