Yes, it’s that time of year again. Dark evenings, warm clothing and Longacres Bagshot Open Evening on Thursday, 17th November – hoorah!
Our open evenings are a great opportunity to enjoy some festive spirit (yes, that does include mulled wine) whilst getting some great bargains. We are giving our customers 10% off all purchases (excluding gift vouchers, alcohol and sheds) from 5:30pm – 8:30pm. There are festive raffles, choirs singing, a magician, food tasting, free wine and mince pies (and soft drinks), great gifts to be purchased, Christmas tree decorating and, of course, the big man himself is here – Santa Claus!
We have parking for over 500 cars at here at Bagshot so pop along to our Facebook page, hit the ‘Going’ button and come on down and join the fabulous, festive, frivolities!
For those of you who missed out on the Bagshot Christmas Open Evening or live closer to the Shepperton store, the Shepperton Christmas Open Evening is being held this Thursday 20th November. The evening kicks off at 5.30PM and will include a variety of festive events and promotions!
Santa will be making an extra special appearance and will hand out sweets and treats to all the good girls and boys. This is a great opportunity to spot Santa before he takes up residence in the grotto at our Bagshot store – opening Saturday 22nd November.
Learn how to tie the perfect bow, gain some wreath decorating inspiration and get some gift-wrapping techniques at the Gift Wrap and Wreath demonstrations from 6-8pm.
To get the festive spirit really under way the Choir of St James’ School in Ashford will be singing some of your favourite Christmas Carols.
Come along and taste a variety of foods, or just grab yourself a mince pie and wine!
Try your luck at winning a fabulous prize by taking part in the raffle on the night.
To thank all our customers we will be offering a 10% discount on purchases made between 5.30pm and 8.00pm on the evening (excludes gift vouchers and sheds – sorry!).
We would like to say a huge thank you to all who got involved with and attended our Christmas Open Evening last Thursday evening; just a few mince pies and not a single drop of wine remained – definitely the sign of a successful evening!
You helped us to raise a lot of money for the Breast Care Centre and Special Care Baby Unit at Frimley Park Hospital (exact amount soon to follow!). Big congratulations to those who won prizes.
We hope that we helped you get into the festive spirit and that you enjoyed the evening as much as we did. Hopefully you didn’t miss out on catching a glimpse of Santa!
