Community/ Christmas Extravaganza 2018
Details of this year's Extravaganza event held on Saturday 8th December.
Every year the town council put on a Christmas Extravaganza evening to announce the start of the Christmas festivities in the town.
This year's festivities took place on Ferrett Green on Saturday 8th December. Strong wind and rain were prevalent through out the afternoon which led to some challenge work for those people erecting tents, particularly Santa's grotto that threatened to blow away before we had a chance for Santa to arrive.
Just after 5:00 Santa arrived to switch on the lights with Verwood Town mayor, Sandra Grove. Those people who weathered the storm were treated to carols from Verwood Town Training band and Choir, mulled wine, mince tarts and marshmallows were supplied by the heritage centre, burgers and hotdogs by the Scouts and the Heritage centre was open for hot coffee. There was even a merry go round for the children.
