 The Third Candle of Advent is called the “Shepherd’s Candle”  and is pink because rose is a liturgical color for joy. The third Sunday of Advent is Gaudete Sunday and is meant to remind us of the joy that the world experienced at the birth of Jesus, as well as the joy that the faithful have reached the midpoint of Advent.

Waste Disposal: It is illegal to burn household or garden waste at home, in your garden or workplace. Burning waste can pollute the air by releasing harmful chemicals into it. There may be many toxic chemicals in waste items such as synthetic materials, preservatives, gels, bleaches and plastics. Burning of such wastes in low-temperature uncontrolled fires creates toxic and dangerous by-products which are not destroyed by the fire but become airborne on soot particles. These can end up being inhaled or being washed out of the air and deposited onto surrounding soil and vegetation, where they can readily enter the food chain. Please care for our environment by disposing of your waste in a responsible manner.

Christmas Gift Fair: The Christmas Gift Fair at Randles Hotel will take place over the weekend of Saturday 17th & Sunday 18th December.  Trading times are 1pm to 6pm both days, stalls ranging from Christmas decorations to jewellery, festive foods, hampers, candles, ceramics and much more.
