2013 CHRISTMAS FESTIVAL
IN NEW MILTON


HOPe joined in with the rest of New Milton to make the Christmas Festival on 30 November a very special day for the visitors who flocked to the town. We had a Cake stall, Tombola and Grand Raffle as well as some Vintage gifts. Lots of volunteers joined the Trustees and Action group members to make the atmosphere bright friendly and full of fun.



As can be seen from the photographs, a good time was had by all, and raised a total of over 450 for the charity!



We also won third prize in the Christmas Window dressing competition!’
