As the big day fast approaches schools, clubs, organisations and town centre events are gathering pace. This week we’re giving you a flavour of the festive season in our communities.
First up, the 4th West Lothian Scouts at Linlithgow Bridge held their annual Christmas fayre on December 7, at Longcroft Hall. The event raised the magnificent sum of £1700 for group funds.
The Friends of Dalmeny parent council ran their annual Christmas fayre at the school, where they raised £2000 for school funds with a Santa’s grotto, along with various other stalls, including the ever popular cake and candy.
Queensferry’s High School’s Parent Staff Association raised £1200 this year at their festive event. The funds have been earmarked for extra-curricular school clubs and field trips.
Bo’ness town centre management team organised a highly successful and well attended Santa parade last Saturday.
The appearance of Santa’s reindeer pulling his sleigh was a great draw for children and parents alike, escorted by the Forth Bridges Accordion Band.
The parade, which started at the Lidl store, finished at Market Square where the reindeer were penned for the rest of the day. Gemma Sime, (7), of Bo’ness, winner of the competition organised by town centre management got to ride on Santa’s sleigh.
Deanburn Primary School was delighted with the £1500 donated to school funds from the annual christmas fayre, organised by the Deanburn Fund Raising Group.
