Shrewsbury town centre Christmas Cracker festivities were this week, marking the official start to the holiday season. The town’s “festive lights” were switched on.
The celebration included the Mayor of Shrewsbury, the Town Crier, Martin Wood, who lead the parade of lanterns as part event. I finally met the 7’2 Town Crier. Big friendly giant. The nicest guy. You hear and see him coming miles away and he’s been the Shrewsbury Crier for 27 years.
(yes, that’s an official Gryffindor Harry Potter scarf – it actually keeps me warm)
This weekend we’ll be getting our Thanksgiving on – hoorah! 90s theme birthday bash and another lil surprise.
