Super switch-on

First published in Letters

MAY I take this opportunity through your letters page to thank everyone who came out to support the recent Blackwood Christmas lights switch-on? sponsored by Blackwood Town Council.

The lights were switched on by the mayor of Blackwood, Cllr Granville Hale, the carnival queen, Hannah Watkins, and her court ladies. The hundreds of people who braved the cold appeared to enjoy the event and were entertained by Caerphilly Samba Band, DYT Dance Group and a special guest appearance by Santa, courtesy of Pontllanfraith Rotary Club.

Congratulations and well done to all involved.

Cllr Andrew Farina-Childs Chair of Events Blackwood Town Council
