The Otford Elves join all of us at the Otford Society in wishing our village a happy, healthy and peaceful Christmas. The elves will be appearing in a shop window near you for a few more days, so there’s still time for primary aged children to memorise a joke and claim their prize.
They have gone ‘CRACKERS’ and can’t wait to tell you their awful Christmas jokes. As part of our Christmas Elf Trail, shop windows throughout the village are displaying posters with Christmas jokes on them. Children from 3 to 103 are invited to look in the window and find the hidden elf holding the joke’s punchline. Those of primary school age can claim a prize by retelling any one of the trail’s 25 jokes to a shopkeeper displaying a ‘Free Prize’ poster in their doorway. The event runs from Wednesday 1st December until Christmas Eve… when all Elves have to be back at base with Santa! Like last year’s successful Snow Dome Trail, we hope this will encourage families to support Otford’s valued retailers during this time of economic uncertainty.
