Councillor Lorelei Nicoll to host Old Fashioned Christmas at the Farm

Join us on Sunday, December 6th from 5:30 to 8pm for an Old Fashioned Christmas at the Farm. The Giles House, Harris House and Blacksmith Shop will be festively decorated and ready to welcome the community for some traditional Christmas fun.

This event is hosted by District 4 Councillor Lorelei Nicoll and sure to be a great community gathering (and not quite as snowy as this photo!)
