The Parish Council would like to give a BIG thank you to all the sponsors, volunteers, performers, emergency services and stallholders who helped make this event a success and the community of Hockley who came along to support the start of the christmas celebrations at the lights switch-on. We hope you enjoyed the afternoon and will be back with us again next year.
⭐️Children's Christmas Competition 2019⭐️
This year we encouraged our Hockley youngsters to paint, crayon, chalk or collage a Christmas Star. The Competition was open to children up to ages 11 years. We had 135 excellent and creative entries, all of which will be displayed at Hockley Library over the festive season. Prizes were presented to the winners at the Parish Hall who were then invited to the stage to switch on the Christmas lights. Well done to all our youngsters.
We wish all our residents a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
