Two Chester councillors have brought Christmas cheer to three local communities which they represent.
Residents of Westminster Park were out in force when Cllr Daniels came to switch on the Christmas lights at the Westminster Park shops.
This great local community event, organised by Westminster Park Residents’ Association (WPRA), involved the local shops and Belgrave Primary School whose choir sang Christmas songs to entertain the crowd.
Chair of WPRA Pauline Brown said: “We are delighted to see so many residents here tonight, and it is always a joy to hear the children sing.
“Yet again, we are grateful to our local shops which have helped to make this such a successful event. Our trees have been supplied by our greengrocer Francis Thomas, Bebbington’s have dished up some delicious hot dogs and the Co-op have provided us with their wonderful mince pies.
“Our top class shops are at the heart of our area and have some fantastic products to offer for Christmas – we are a very lucky community.”
The children of Westminster Park were also lucky as they were able to meet a special visitor, Santa who came along to greet them in his grotto and give them some early Christmas presents of sweets and satsumas.
Handbridge Community Association organised various activities including carol singing by Overleigh Primary School and Children had a chance to visit Santa’s grotto which was built by students of West Cheshire College in Handbridge.
There will be more Christmas carol singing which will take place on the Green in Curzon Park on December 19.
Cllr Daniels said: “It was just wonderful to see all the communities, businesses and schools take part in the festivities and creating a fantastic Christmas spirit. We would like to take this opportunity to wish everyone a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.”
Cllr Neil Sullivan added: “Each year we help to fund Christmas festivities in our local communities as we know just how valued these events are by residents. We would like to thank everyone for making the Christmas events a great success.”
