A big thank you to everyone who supported any of the Christmas activities held in the village, many of which were raising funds for various charities. Rennie Grove advised that their santa float raised nearly £5k this year (across all the towns, not just Pitstone!) raising vital funds to support their nurses and help some families spend a memorable last Christmas together. The Church Road residents created an amazing light display and raised enough to provide Frankie, a local girl with Rett Syndrome, with a hoist to enable her to enjoy hydrotherapy to help maintain her mobility. Pitstone Church opened for the first time this Christmas and raised over £200 with their memory tree. The Scouts operated their Christmas post again, St Marys Church and Ivinghoe Hub both held Christmas Markets, there was a Charity Shopping & Pamper Evening for Macmillan Cancer Care, Friends of Brookmead hosted a Christmas Craft evening, Ivinghoe & Pitstone United Cricket Club arranged Christmas Bingo and the Pitstone Social Club put on a Christmas Eve event. We’d also like to that those involved with the United Benefice Senior Citizens Christmas Lunch.
