Sparkling Lights in the Sidmouth Night19th December 2018
Our Sidmouth office enjoyed being part of the Regency town’s annual Late Night Opening in the run up to the Christmas holidays.
From 5pm – 8pm on Friday 7th December, staff from our Sidmouth office began serving our local community, not our usual law services, but mince pies and mulled wine.
The late night opening allows local businesses in the seaside town to open their doors to shoppers to browse for gifts. This is a key date in the festive calendar for Sidmouth Chamber of Commerce, as they organise the event each year. The tradition of local businesses and organisations serving refreshments provides a chance to show the community not only high quality, often unique gifts, but also the cafés, restaurants, independent book shops and professional services that can be found on their doorstep.
The evening offered Christmas lights and window displays in the high street and live entertainment. This included music from Sidmouth Town Band and local choirs, performances from the Sidmouth Steppers and the Sidmouth Mummers.
It was a joy to wrap up warm and be part of this community event. Gilbert Stephens was happy to welcome so many locals to the office, and to get into that magical Christmas spirit, which can’t help but warm you on a cold night filled with twinkling lights, mulled spices and smiling shoppers
