Our Christmas Windows

We are so lucky to have some very creative members of staff who make window dressing look easy. Very grateful to them for our beautiful Christmas Windows that are making us feel warm inside on such a cold morning here in Aldeburgh today! It was great to have the Band of the Royal British Legion lifting our festive spirits at the shop yesterday and at the (rather soggy) switch-on. And last but by no means least, here are some photos of the fabulous Aldeburgh Community Christmas Project of which we... Read More
