Wicklow People - - NEWS -

Ethna Nei­land and John Mulqueen are the new­est mem­bers of Wick­low and Dis­trict Lions Club.

They were both made very wel­come by all mem­bers at their in­duc­tion cer­e­mony on Wed­nes­day last and pre­sented with their of­fi­cial Lions badge by Pres­i­dent Pat O’Brien who sin­cerely wel­comed Ethna and John.

Wick­low’s Abbey Grounds will be trans­formed this month for the fes­tive sea­son.

The Christ­mas Mar­ket will take place on the week­ends of De­cem­ber 8 and 9, De­cem­ber 15 and 16 and De­cem­ber 22 be­tween 12 noon and 6 p.m.

In ad­di­tion to the plen­ti­ful se­lec­tion of lo­cal ar­ti­san foods, dec­o­ra­tions, gifts and work­shops, there will be an abun­dance of fun and sparkly ac­tiv­i­ties to get young and old into the Christ­mas mood.

There will also be the op­por­tu­nity to visit Santa in his mag­i­cal Grotto.

To add a lit­tle ex­tra touch of ex­cite­ment and Christ­mas cheer, the com­mit­tee have or­gan­ised a num­ber of mu­si­cal and en­ter­tain­ment book­ings to daz­zle the senses, along with a mag­i­cal fam­ily fun­fair within the his­tor­i­cal Abbey Grounds.

They will also be host­ing an Al­paca ex­pe­ri­ence where adults and chil­dren will get a chance to min­gle with all things woolly and won­der­ful.

These mar­kets prom­ise to be an event to re­mem­ber and there is plenty of park­ing nearby.

This is a non-tick­eted event, so any­one and ev­ery­one is wel­come to at­tend and browse through our stalls and treat­filled venue. This is a wheel­chair and buggy friendly event.

The mar­ket will also be a Greener Fes­ti­val event. Or­gan­is­ers and stall hold­ers are work­ing to­gether to en­sure that the fes­ti­val is brought to you with min­i­mal im­pact on the en­vi­ron­ment.

There are a num­ber of key en­vi­ron­men­tal ar­eas that the team were keen to fo­cus on.
