Switching on the Christmas Tree Lights at around 11.20 is our guest from Northern, Liam Sumpter Regional Director Central.
Creating seasonal music for the event will be popular group SPINDRIFT again making a welcome return to the station!
As in previous years children will have a chance to make decorations (templates kindly supplied by Simon Denvers) for the Christmas tree and to take home, with expert help on hand from Andrea Strogen and her team. We hope too to have a model railway on display. Refreshments can be obtained in TWIG cafe on the station. A Christmas Raffle with a first prize of a Northern Day Out will be held.
So a FOGS' warm welcome awaits whether you are a returning guests or first time ones!!
We would like to say a big thank you to Northern for its help with this event - to Theo McLauchlan for helping with arrangements and to Matt Worman, Client and Stakeholder Manager, for invaluable assistance with publicity and organisation.
Decorating the station for Christmas begins this week so come and sample the festive atmosphere at our Gala!!
