From 16th December Winchelsea Christmas Windows will be lighting up for Demelza Children’s Hospice.  There will be 24 windows taking part and, in a change from previous years, all will be lit together from Saturday 16th until Sunday 31st December.  This means that you can see all the windows on the same day if you wish.  They will go on at 4.30pm and off at 9pm. We are delighted to welcome St Thomas’ School who will dress the Court Hall window.  Badges, and maps showing all the window locations, are available to purchase at Winchelsea Farm Kitchen (as well as small torches) and from The New Inn, The Black Cat Gallery and The Lodge at Winchelsea.  Our heartfelt thanks to everyone who has created a window or display and made badges. All proceeds will go to Demelza.
