Epping Society Christmas Lunch

Town Mayor Barbara Scrution joined around 40 members of the Epping Society for their Annual Christmas lunch which was held this year at Wildwood in Epping High Street.

Pretty Woman win best Christmas Shop Display

Epping Town Council's Audrey Rose Cup presented to the shop or business judged to have the best festive window display in the town has been won by Pretty Woman and Every Man. The trophy was presented to owner Nikki Ross and her staff by Town Mayor Barbara Scruton at the Council's Christmas Market on Friday. Runners-up were Piccola and Mr Smith's hairdressers with Collop Carpets receiving a commendation.

Christmas Market this Friday

This Friday promises to be an exciting one for residents. The Christmas Market opens at noon, where over 60 stalls will be offering a selection of Christmas gifts and festive foods. At 1pm the annual festival of Christmas trees opens in St John's Church, an event that gets better and better every year, with over 60 trees being dressed by various groups, organisations and businesses.

Epping Christmas Lights 2014

Many residents will not know who puts up the Christmas Lights in Epping. Most residents will be aware though that for many years up until this year, we used to have real christmas trees suspended above the shopfronts with nails and string (yes, really!) and may be wondering why this has changed.
