Our elves (office staff) were busy yesterday afternoon putting up several hundred baubles around the Christmas Tree in the centre of the village.
The children at Hook Infant School and Hook Junior School were invited by Hook Parish Council to decorate a bauble. They were asked to put what they were looking forward to or what they were wishing for, for Christmas.
The baubles we received back were lovely. We have really enjoyed reading them. The messages the children wrote were heartfelt. Some wished for peace, others wished to have lost loved ones with them, others were looking forward to Christmas dinner and spending time with their families and some were just wanting snow and hoping they had been good, so Santa would bring them a present. They also did some beautiful drawings. Our thanks to all the children that participated to produce such a lovely addition to our Christmas display this year.
