Fairycroft House in Saffron Walden is turning into an Advent calendar.

Throughout December, 24 windows of the Audley Road house will be numbered and every day a Christmas display will be revealed.

Many of the organisations that use the building will be designing the windows, ranging from dance schools to music groups.

The final window, which will be revealed on Christmas Eve, is the Georgian bay window.

A Fairycroft spokesman said: “We have all had a tough 2020, and, as we emerge from this second lockdown, Fairycroft House has decided to contribute to the effort of raising the spirits during the run up to Christmas, specifically in the Advent period. It promises to be a really fun community initiative.
