Finish the Xmas shop

Shoppers can get all their last minute gifts bought without trekking out of the Dales as Cromford hosts its first late night shopping event.

More than a dozen Cromford businesses will be open until at least 8pm on Thursday, December 20, and there will be Christmas discounts, offers available.

The event has been organised jointly between the newly formed Traders’ Association and Celebrating Cromford.

Children who complete the free snowman trail to solve a puzzle will win a prize while adults will be offered a glass of mulled wine.
