FRIDAY 25 NOVEMBER 2022
The festive season was kicked off with the villages Christmas Light Switch-on. Families congregated around the Christmas tree outside All Saints Church where Ashley Guest from Ackworth Community Church led the service with Rev Karen Young from St. Cuthbert's leading in the sermon.
We all joined together to sing carols around the tree with the children holding homemade lanterns adding to the joyous celebration. Cllr Martin Roberts introduced the Gala Queen (Faith Connelly) and King (Jacob Lindley) who together pressed the plunger to officially turn on the villages Christmas lights.
The Parish Council then welcomed everyone into All Saints church for refreshments kindly served by volunteers of All Saints Church.
