The Christmas Lights are on at the Red Lion…!

‘The Red Lion would like to thank Hadsham Farm for the wonderful Christmas Tree (adjacent to the pub). Many people have commented on how lovely it is to see it as they enter the village. The delight it brings to the children who use the school bus is obvious by the expression on their faces.

A special thanks goes to Dave Taylor who annually mounts and places the tree and provides his time and a cherry picker to put up the fairy lights. Thanks again.’

Dave and Natasha, the Red Lion
