We had a fantastic Christmassy time on Monday evening at the South Normanton Community Lantern Parade and Carol Concert.
Luckily this year, the weather was kind to us and it wasn't too cold and wet.
We left St Michael's Church at 6.00pm to walk through the village to the Postmill Centre. We were expertly led by the lovely Barry Thacker, a member of the local police force and also one of our nursery governors.
There were lots of our nursery children and their families in the parade, wrapped up warm and carying the lanterns that we made at nursery. It was also great to see lots of older familiar faces too...many children and families that we knew from nursery in years gone by. The lanterns looked really beautiful, lit up in the dark.
When we'd settled in at The Postmill Centre, the nursery children were asked to sing first. They did brilliantly well up on the stage, in front of all the other children and their families. We sang our 'Hello Song', 'Put YOur Coat On' and 'I'm a Little Snowflake' to finish with.
Our children were followed by Christmas singing from The Brigg, The Green and The Glebe Schools as well as the Elements Community Choir. Well done to all who took part.
Thanks to all our children and their parents/ carers who supported with this lovely community event...it really was a fitting start to the Christmas season.
Thanks also to Barry and his team and all the volunteers who made this event run so smoothly.
