Yule like our festive identity
4:00pm Wednesday 31st October 2012 in News
IT’S GOING to be a case of hip, hip hurrah for the Bridport’s Christmas festivities – which will now be Bridport’s Christmas Cheer.
After seeking suggestions from local people for a new name to give the festive evening a new identity, organisers picked Christmas Cheer as the perfect way to sum up the evening of shopping and seasonal entertainments to be held this year on Wednesday December 5.
And Tessa Greenaway and Jane Edwards, who both came up with the winning suggestion, were invited to Footeprints in East Street to discuss their prize of personalised Christmas cards and festive wrapping paper with Jason Foote, one of the committee members.
The new co-ordinator for the evening, Becky Kingston, said that from the entries received, Christmas Cheer rang all the right bells.
“It has the sound of coming together and celebrating and something to cheer for, “ she said.
“And it will be something to cheer everyone up!”
