Community Lantern Parade – Something Special

On Friday 3rd December the Community Lantern Parade took place and feedback has been so positive. We would like to thank all who attended and contributed, from the hours spent painstakingly creating tiny joined up willow structures to huge fish to navigating a myriad of safety issues to creating portable music and getting permission to use our Castle to the logistics of a parade in the dark!
Thank you for coming to see the parade!

Thank you to artists Gemma Mcoll, Alice Redfearn, Suzanne Williams and Sarah Gent!
To the EH team Sam, Nicola and Patrick. To the Town Council staff and Mayor Rima, to Euphoria and Runaway Samba. To Andrew for the commentary, Santa and our Town Cryer.
