Well, it’s the month of Christmas, so here’s everything that’s going on in Chester Green over the festive period! I’ve also attached the November newsletter, as I forgot last month!
We’ve got the excellent XMas window trail, where over 50 windows are taking part. Spot the XMas pudding to be put into a draw to win a prize draw.
There’s the Christingle service on Sunday 2nd December at 4pm (St Paul’s) and the excellent Carol service (with live brass band….not to be missed!) on 16th December at 7pm.
The Seventh-day Adventist Church also have a Carol Service on 14th December at 6.30pm.
Lots of other news and info, attached below!

The Chester Green Christmas Window Trail will officially start from 6th December. You may have already noticed some of the windows going up in local businesses and houses, and if you find the house with the XMas Pud in the window, and return your map, you’ll be entered into a prize draw!
We also featured on BBC Radio Derby last Friday. You can have a listen to our 5 minutes of fame below:

However, there is more exciting news which you will have seen on our facebook page, and in the media in that the Cathedral is planning on opening a secondary school in DE1 (i.e. near the Cathedral).

Please spread the word, and register your interest at the site below. More details on the site below:
