Christmas Village at Westridge Opens this Weekend

The Annual Christmas Village at Westridge Estates opens this weekend. Started in 1990 by Brad Peck & his grandson Andy Bailey, this annual tradition includes over 160 lighted porcelain houses in a late 19th-century setting including a city, farmland, amusement park, ski mountain resort, New England country side and seaport and a Swiss village. The 300 square-foot display includes working trains and animation to thrill the Chrismas child in all of us. Admission is absolutely free and donations are NOT accepted!

This year, the Christmas Village will be open from 2-4pm on Saturdays and Sundays between December 14th and January 5th. It is located in the basement of the Westridge Farmhouse (office), 970 Township Line Road, Phoenixville, PA.

For more information, give Brad a call at (610)983-0129.

Public meeting to discuss future of Melchiorre Park scheduled for Nov. 29th

On Thursday, November 29th, the Borough is holding a 'brainstorming session' in which plans for Melchiorre Park will be discussed with its park planning consultants. The event will be held at the High School and will begin 7pm. For those of you who do not know about Melchiorre Park (of which I am included, even though I apparently live across the street from it), it is a 23 acre park located south of High Street on the land between it and French Creek. It appears, based on the drawing on the Borough home page , to be the land that is next to Westridge Village and across the street from the new Northridge Village community. As part of the meeting, the consultants will 'provide a brief background of the project and present a pre-final master plan for the park'. Source: Phoenixville Borough Website
