Merry Christmas

As the great Noddy Holder once sang….”So here it is…..”
Well, we had it all this week in the Town, freezing fog and, well, just plain freezing. Who knows, maybe we’ll even get some snow. If you’re reading this from a far, then our -4c, which is was last night, probably isn’t that cold, but it was to us !!! As the lights twinkle around the town and the kids are on their best behaviour (in theory, anyway) may I wish all our readers a Merry Christmas and a very Happy New Year. Do keep an eye on the Blog as while the Editor enjoys some festive spirit, who knows what prizes he may give away…..

Ok, not a Gala Event but worth a mention. The annual Portaferry Bazaar is on today. Loads of good prizes and always good fun. It’s in St Patrick’s Community Centre and runs from 3pm until, well, all the prizes are won I guess !

Brrrrrr Switch On !


Well, if ever there was a chill winter wind in the air, it was this evening in the square. After a very busy afternoon of handing out presents, Santa’s little helpers and a crowd from the town gathered in the square with Ards Mayor Angus Carson, Clrs Joe Boyle & Kieran McCarthy, as Mrs J Carson (the power behind the throne !!) threw the switch and lit up the town square while the local Methodist Church Choir sang Christmas Carols. Oh and of course we all looked towards the sky for a glimpse of the retreating sleigh. Click here for pictures.

Don’t forget to call at the country market next Saturday, the 9th, for your Santa Pictures.
