Carterton Winter Lights Procession

CARTERTON WINTER LIGHTS PROCESSION

Everyone who came along to the Winter Lights Procession enjoyed a magical stroll with sparkling lanterns on Friday 9th December.

The walk  began at St John the Evangelist Church and finished at the Carterton Community Centre where everyone enjoyed carols sung by children from Gateway school. Free refreshments were provided which were very kindly donated by the Co-operative Store, Marigold Square, Shilton Park.  Carterton Lions provided a beautiful grotto for Father Christmas to visit us.  All the children loved seeing him & giving their present requests. This proved to be a hugely successful and popular evening attended by approximatley 250 people.

Thank you to the organisers – WODC, Carterton Lions & Carterton Community Centre but also a huge thank you to all the volunteers from other groups such as Carterton U3A & Cottsway Housing who helped out on the evening.
