Lindal Christmas lights switch-on

SANTA was the guest of honour at Lindal’s annual Christmas lights switch-on.

The festive event, which raises money for St Peter’s Church at The Green, took place last Thursday.

The lights were switched on by a local Santa Claus, who attended the ceremony on a decorated tractor.

He was helped in his festive task by St Peter’s Gala Queen Freya Gray, aged 11.

The switch-on featured a Christmas fair, held in the Buccleuch Hall.

The fair included a number of stalls run by churchgoers.

A variety of products were on offer at the fair, including bric-a-brac, baking, craft and jewellery.

Church warden at St Peter’s, Jennifer Pardoe, from Lindal, said: “Numbers were down on last year.

“However, we raised just over £700 for the church which is better than average.

“The children always enjoy this event.

“They were all very excited to meet Father Christmas.”

The lights were a variety of blue and purple and covered the area surrounding The Green, which is at the heart of the village.

Mrs Pardoe added: “This event really starts the Christmas countdown and is enjoyed by everyone in the village.”
