Christmas in Neston 2020 - bringing lights, love, and lots of festive fun to our homes and streets.
This will be a Christmas like no other we've seen, but it will be the best ever in a pandemic!
Everyone can be involved in creating a Window Wanderland around our streets; there will be competitions- both popping up here and there. You'll be able to watch the traditional lights switch-on streamed live, and see festive messages from all sorts of people and groups. And, you're encouraged to share your own videos, photos, and messages with the whole community.
Let’s make Neston festive again!
A Covid-safe way to connect people, transforming streets into magical outdoor galleries.
Neston Window Wanderland is a beautiful and magical community display of window art, brightening up our streets and homes during the dark winter nights.
For the Window Wanderland, decorate your house, flat, window, gates, or caravan with lights. We'll be sharing videos with you to help you with ideas for your displays. You'll then be able to share your window creations with us and some will be uploaded to the site for people to see. We will also add street names so that families can then safely wander in their own time, to marvel at the Christmas creativity on show locally. Neston will also have its very own pin on the national Winter Wanderland map
The Neston Rotary are working closely with Santa this year to make sure that all our children have an opportunity to chat with him and share their wishes. Book your Zoom with Santa via the form
The Rotary are unable to collect donations on their usual annual round this year, so they are asking for donations to support their chosen charities.
