Ashton Christmas Markets

It has been a delight, once again, to be able to experience a Christmas Market in the centre of Ashton. An Ice-skating rink, 30 or so Christmas cabins, a beer tent with excellent mulled wine and a stage showcasing many wonder local groups. A tremendous lantern parade before the Christmas lights were switched on. And this year the opportunity for Churches to be involve in events on the main stage. On Sunday 7th December GAP Puppets from St. Mary’s Haughton Green ( were invited by the Town Centre Anglican Churches to lead carol singing.TJ 3GAP 10

Did you miss it – sorry! But don’t worry. The Markets are on until 21st December!

Some pictures of the event(s)!
