We would normally be looking forward to Festive Family Fun and Carolfest but unfortunately this year, it’s just not possible to bring large crowds all together.

But this hasn’t stopped Aylesbury Town Council from putting their thinking caps on and coming up with a COVID- friendly selection box of events for you to enjoy with your family and social bubbles.

Aylesbury’s Key Worker Duck Trail – Sunday 5 December until Sunday 13 December Aylesbury Town Centre

Very special hand-painted Aylesbury Ducks will be on display in shop windows around the town. Follow the trail, complete the simple quiz and find out about some amazing local Key Worker Heroes. With a brilliant prize bundle donated by local independent businesses, this is a wonderful way to have some fun with the little ones while in town.

Nominate your Aylesbury Key Worker Hero.

Nominations are open until Friday 27 November.

More information about the trail, including how to download the trail sheet and submit your Key Work nomination, please visit aylesburytowncouncil.gov.uk/ducktrailStar of Bethlehem, star gazing talk – Sunday 13 December at 6pm, via Zoom

Have you ever wondered about the billions of stars we can see from our own back garden?

Or where the Star of Bethlehem story may have originated from? Aylesbury Town Council’s virtual stargazing event is a brilliant opportunity to learn from the amateur experts from UK Astronomy.

A fun spin on the classic family game. With thanks to the very talented actors from Unbound Theatre who will be doing the miming you can sit back, have a laugh and

compete against your family guessing what’s what.

Mayor of Aylesbury, Cllr Mike Smith, said: “This really has been a challenging year for many people, so we are very proud to sprinkle a little festive cheer and sparkle to the residents of our town. The Key Worker Duck Trail sums up the unique history of our town, at the same time as celebrating our many heroes who have shone through this testing year.

"I am looking forward to reading all the nominations – but I am sure the final selection is going to be rather difficult. I hope that you are able to pop into

town to see them all.

“We are thrilled to be able to continue our partnership work with UK Astronomy and Unbound Theatre, both charities are a joy to work with, and I know they will entertain

and educate you with these unique events.”

Aylesbury Town Council provide these events without charge to support the wellbeing and positive spirit of the town.
