Toton Advent Windows

Advent Windows returned this Christmas to bring the good news of Christmas into the community from 1-24th December.  During this time decorated windows in Toton were lit up from 6-8pm each evening to reveal the story of the first Christmas.  We were able to visit a new window every day and enjoy outdoor seasonal refreshments.  How many windows did you visit?
