We had the pleasure of hosting a 100th birthday celebration today for Gwen Hewitt who was joined by all her loving family and friends to celebrate this wonderful milestone.
Bromyard’s “fabled Christmas Illuminations” are “reputed to be the best display in Herefordshire”.
It’s big talk from the little town but every year the Big Switch On attracts thousands of people – 2,500 packed into the High Street last year, for the event’s 50th anniversary.
Helping the crowds get their Festive Feels on is Santa’s grotto and carol singing.
