Skelton and Brotton Parish Council kicked off Christmas with two free community events at Skelton Civic Hall.
The ‘Celebration of Christmas’ was held on Saturday 3 December 2016, with Christmas Carols and songs from Skelton Primary School Choir and Lockwood Brass Band. Father and Mother Christmas also called in to enjoy the show.
Festive treats and mulled wine were enjoyed afterwards.
‘Celebration of Christmas’
Sunday 4 December 2016 saw the return of the ever popular Children’s Christmas Party. This was once again well attended by local children and their parents. Silly Steve, and face painters kept the children entertained, and also had lots of the adult up and dancing too! Each child received a gift from Father and Mother Christmas.
Refreshments were served by Parish Council Members and Staff.
