A regular column from Tulip Radio’s Jan Whitbourn.

Tulip Radio’s Christmas event will take place on Friday, December 2 at St John the Baptist Church in Spalding.

Preparations are underway and we hope that as many people as possible will attend. The agenda for the event is changing all the time and getting very exciting.

Following on from our Armed Forces Day celebration earlier in the summer, the event will feature more presentations of Armed Forces Veterans Badges to ex-service personnel as a gesture of recognition and thanks from us all for their service and their families’ sacrifice.

In July, Tulip Radio was honoured to compère the Armed Forces Day celebration held at the Anglia Motel at Fleet Hargate. The day included a Spitfire and Hurricane flypast, a quiz and a special ‘Ready Steady Cook’ competition that saw the Army take on the Navy.

Entertainment will be provided in the form of our annual School Choirs Competition. Local businesses have donated some amazing prizes. The first ten schools to enter their choir will receive £50, donated by Majestic Bingo and EMG. An iPad will be given to the winning school and many more prizes will be announced shortly and of course Christmas wouldn’t be Christmas without the man himself, Father Christmas will be making an appearance!

The deadline to enter the School Choir Competition is Tuesday, November 1. Call Jan Whitbourn on 01775 712400 or email
