Thursday 13th December marked the first of what we hope will become a regular event in the Gazebo Garden in the run up to Christmas. This rather magical picture of our ‘St. Lucy’ sums up the evening.
For those of you unfamiliar with the Scandinavian tradition of a St Lucy’s Day festival and procession, you will find some background information on Wikipedia here.
Ann Buckley and Canon Tom Kennar from St Faith’s were instrumental in bringing the tradition to Havant in 2018 and we hope to make it an annual event. We couldn’t fault the lovely gingerbread snacks, the stollen, the mulled fruit drinks and the coffee, but next year we’ll be looking to encourage more enthusiasm in the ‘lantern’ department!
It was a lovely evening in the run up to Christmas and a fine example of the kind of event that the Gazebo Garden can be used for.
