A communal Advent calendar has brought the village of Rudgwick together to celebrate the countdown to Christmas.

Schools, clubs, church groups and businesses have taken turns at creating an Advent display inside a horse box at the telephone exchange car park in Church Street each night in December.

The displays, based on carols and popular Christmas songs, are on show from 5.30-6.30pm up until December 24. Around 200 volunteers have taken part in the project, from help with stewarding and graphic design, to school children and church groups.

“There’s a great buzz”, says Liz Eden, lay minister of Rudgwick’s Holy Trinity Church, who got the idea from the Beach Hut Advent Calendar in Hove.

“It’s good old fashioned fun. People have really loved the concept and want to be involved.”
