Local Christmas festivities kick off this weekend with a reindeer procession in Eton on Thursday, Christmas Craft Fair in Horton on Friday and a Santa Fun Run in Staines on Saturday.

The annual Colnbrook Christmas Carol Sing-along will return on Friday, 16th December at 7pm. Hot minced pies and mulled win will be served, along with tea, coffee and squash.
