Barry Bear lights up Thatcham
Newbury Building Society toasts the Thatcham Christmas Lights Switch On.
Newbury Building Society heralded the arrival of Christmas by joining in the festivities at this year’s Thatcham Christmas Lights Switch On. The town came alive with steam engines, stalls, street entertainment and delicious food, as live music shook the Broadway. The switch on of the Christmas lights wrapped up a successful evening which saw Barry Bear entertain children and adults who attended the event.
In the Society’s Thatcham branch, children were given an early Christmas present from Barry Bear, and they had the chance of winning further prizes if they played the Messy Money Mucky Dip. Refreshments were available for children and parents to enjoy, from orange juice to chocolates, mince pies to a glass of fizz.
Office Manager for the Thatcham branch, Debbie Brockett said: “The branch was very busy, with a festive atmosphere. We served Bucks Fizz and festive delicacies, handed out goody bags, held a Mucky Dip and raised a lot of awareness about the Society.”
