If you’re looking for a fun, festive and free activity this Christmas then look no further.
The St Paul’s Living Advent Calendar began on Tuesday December 1, and will continue to run throughout the whole month.
St Paul’s Road Area Residents Association (SPRA) posted on Facebook saying that there were two windows for most nights, and added a map to make it easier for you to enjoy the walk.
This comes as Cheltenham Borough Council have been encouraging people to put up their Christmas decorations early and join Father Christmas online for a Christmas countdown.
Councillor Flo Clucas member for healthy lifestyles said: “This year has been very different, and to help bring a bit of sparkle and happiness into our lives, Father Christmas thought that he’d invite everyone to a special Cheltenham online event to help everyone share a magical moment.
“Whether people want to place a simple tea light in their window, or decorate the whole of their home, we’d like to encourage everyone to join in and spread some Christmas cheer.”
