The Sywell Blades took to the ice at Beckworth Emporium for their annual Christmas photo.

Pilots from the display team, based at Sywell Aerodrome, performed a fly-past at the Emporium’s opening in 2009 and have enjoyed a close relationship with them ever since. Alison Williams, from Beckworth Emporium, said: “We’re really proud the team chose us to be the setting for their Christmas picture, and it was great to see them whizzing round the ice-rink.”
