With 32 days to go till Christmas, the Dust Town Dogs switched on Consett’s Christmas Tree lights yesterday.
I know that because there’s a window on Medomsley Road with the countdown on a slate, and I’m grateful for the reminder of how the days are flying by and barely a present bought. Meanwhile, I understand, plenty of presents were dished out by Santa on Saturday morning, wearing his earliest green outfit which he had dusted down for Consett.
Because it was also Christmas Fair time at Consett Methodists, I only caught bits and bobs of the various bands and performers who graced the Middle Street stage, though I enjoyed what I saw. And now it’s 31 days to go.Leave a comment
