Friends of St Edmund’s Church in Sedgefield are breaking with tradition this year as they plan their annual pre-Christmas shopping expedition for members and supporters.

Instead of their usual trip to York, they are offering a day out to the Royal Armouries in Leeds for history enthusiasts or an opportunity to explore the stores and festive sights of the city for those wanting to search for last-minute Christmas gifts.

Millennium Square in the city centre has been transformed into a scenic winter village with over 40 traditional wooden chalet stalls selling a wide range of festive products including toys, jewellery, gifts, cards and unique decorations.

The trip has been arranged for December 5 and the cost is £22. Admission to the Royal Armouries is free.

Places on the coach can be booked with secretary Alison Hodgson on 01740 620912.

The coach will leave Sedgefield (outside the Parish Hall) at 9am and will drop off (and collect) at both the Royal Armouries and in the city centre.
