The Hockley Christmas Lights

The Hockley Christmas Lights are going to be turned on at 5:45 PM next Saturday 24th November. Somebody said recently that Hockley “Punches above its weight” at Chrustmas time – it’s only a large village, but has pretty decent Xmas illuminations.

Maybe that “Punches above its weight’ phrase should be taken more literally. According to the Hockley Chamber of Trade website , they are going to be turned on by Carole Weston, Chair of the Parish Council, and Mel Spicer , British Ladies Kickboxing Champion.

There will also be :

“Exotic Belly Dancers, Funfair Rides and Sideshows, Newfoundland Dogs

Santa’s Grotto, Hildale Academy Dancers and Singers, Jo Jingles Dancers, Gifts and Crafts Stalls, Carol Singing.

Mulled wine and Chestnuts, Fire Brigade, St John’s Ambulance, Rayleigh Lions Stall, Charity Raffle”
