Families and visitors to Holbeach can look forward to a new festive event in the town next month.
The Holbeach Hub, in Boston Road South, is to host its own Christmas Day on Sunday, December 4, between 10am and 4pm.
We have been approached by a number of people who were going to be involved in the Holbeach Christmas fayre and so we have decided to hold a Christmas Day at the Holbeach HubCoun Tracey Carter, South Holland District Council member for Holbeach Town
Dance and martial arts displays, food and gift stalls and a Santa’s Grotto are some of the events promised at The Christmas Day, a replacement for Holbeach’s annual Christmas fayre that was called off by lead organiser Les Ward last week.
Coun Tracey Carter, South Holland District Council member for Holbeach Town, said: “The Holbeach Hub trustees heard, with sadness, that one of the Christmas fayres in the town is no longer going ahead.
“We have been approached by a number of people who were going to be involved in the event and have therefore decided to hold a Christmas Day at the Holbeach Hub.”
The Christmas Day event is totally unconnected with the Holbeach St Nicholas Christmas Fayre, organised by members of the town’s All Saints Church, which takes place on Saturday and Sunday, December 3 and 4.
Coun Carter said: “The trustees feel that it would be great Holbeach to offer its residents two venues to visit on Sunday, December 4, with the Holbeach St Nicholas Fayre on as well.
“However, we will be offering different stalls and events at the Hub, therefore complementing the existing Holbeach St Nicholas Fayre which has run successfully for the past two years.”
