The Lighting of the Creigiau Village Christmas Tree.


On Sunday 2nd December 2012 at 6pm the Reverend Michael John invited the Creigiau Residents to attend the Creigiau Parish Hall for some hot chocolate & marshmallows or mulled wine together with a buffet of mince pies and sausage rolls (including vegetarian ones !) prior to officially switching on the Creigiau Christmas Tree lights for 2012.

The children of the village were given a raffle ticket on arrival and the lucky raffle winner was young Heidi who was given the honour of being the first person to switch on the Christmas tree lights.

Reverend John thanked the Creigiau 23 for contributing the Christmas Tree and lights to the village and confirmed that the lights will be now be lit between 5.30pm and 11pm every night until the traditional twelfth night.

After a very busy year Iím sure all members would agree that it was another successful year under Steve's chairmanship.

As well as the usual events, this year saw the return of the Hog roast as well as an Away Night at the Lord Mayor official residence, The Mansion House.

Thanks for organising them all Steve and well done!!.
