Many thanks to the Parish Council for organising and hosting the lighting of the Christmas Tree Light-up with a thank you to all those who made the event possible from David Annat, Chair of the Parish Council.


“Our special thanks to DAVID AND JAYNEE THEAKER and their family FROM STABLE COTTAGE,  who not only provided a tree for the second year running but again cut it down and  transported it from their farm in Yorkshire. Many thanks from us all!

New this year is our source of electricity traditionally from Corner Cottage. However with the sad passing of Roland and Sue Tacey – JACKIE JOHNSTON from OLD VICARAGE has allowed us to connect to her mains supply. Thank you Jackie.

Of course the source is not as close as previous, so that has necessitated extra cabling and cable protection across two roads. Here our special thanks again go once again to farmers and fellow parish councillors, Richard Sherratt and Alan Grindey who erected the tree, put up the lights and with help from Brian Broomhead linked and fixed the cables.

Once lit enjoy you Mulled Wine courtesy of Hartington Oddfellows, Mince Pies and Prosecco from the Community Group and Carols from Hartington Singers under Liz Hitch”



Thank you also to those around the village who lit their Christmas decorations to co-incide with the lighting of the tree, particularly those around the village centre. Do check out the Hartington Christmas Windows/Lights trail 2023 starting at 5pm on the 10th December – 27th December and thanks in advance to those taking part.
