Christmas trail featuring the Twelve Days of Christmas along the Askew Road featuring sponsored wreaths that will be displayed by local businesses


Build on the friendly sense of community of Askew Road, a road featuring mainly independent shops and bring people together.

In addition, your time and involvement in this community event is what will make the difference.

If you have any ideas please get in touch. One suggestion is to produce a recipe leaflet featuring items mentioned in the Twelve Days of Christmas song. Perhaps restaurants and cafes could provide some free beverages for carol singers and launch participants

On the twelfth day of Christmas, my true love sent to me

Twelve drummers drumming, Eleven pipers piping,

Ten lords a-leaping, Nine ladies dancing, Eight maids a-milking,

Seven swans a-swimming, Six geese a-laying, Five golden rings, Four calling birds,

Three French hens, Two turtle doves,

And a partridge in a pear tree!
