Markham Clinton Community Project

The end of 2023 was a very exciting time in West Markham – the wreath making was a great success with 13 people attending and some beautiful designs.

The Christmas lights looked amazing in the villages of Milton, Bevercotes and West Markham. They had a beautiful Christmas Tree donated by Paul Carruthers, from Egmanton Christmas Trees, and it looked splendid with presents piled high under it for children attending the Carol Service on 17th December.

Friday 8th December was the Markham Clinton Community Project’s (MCCP) carols, mulled wine and supper event. It was well attended with over 30 people enjoying cold meats (provided by Maloney’s Tuxford at a very generously discounted price). Victoria played the organ and it was a beautiful meal, all free of charge and provided by MCCP together with the UK Shared Prosperity Fund and support from Bassetlaw District Council.
