CHRISTMAS OFFICIALLY STARTED in Hedon last night as Hundreds turned out to see the town Christmas tree lit up by the Town Mayor. Cllr Ann Suggitt was helped by a white-beared gentleman with a red coat who said in a local accent “Hedon’s great at Christmas!”. After doing his duty this gentleman miraculously melted into the crowd and later turned up in Nutmegs window! (See picture).
Special stalls lined the traffic-free street and turned the town centre into a Christmas market for the night.
It was a great night but perhaps the sound system could be a bit better next year, the host speaker, the Mayor and Santa were all difficult to hear in the winter wind.
