Hundreds turn out for lights switch on

Hundreds turn out for lights switch on

Hundreds of Dronfield residents turned out on Friday 1 December to witness the Town Mayor, Cllr Philip Wright, switch-on the Dronfield Christmas Lights in the Library Gardens. Singers from Dronfield Junior School joined the crowds and performed two beautiful Christmas Songs and the Sheffield Concert Band played while carols were sung by everyone in attendance.

A collection was taken at the end of the evening and a total of £175 was raised, which will be split equally between the Mayors Charity Fund and Dronfield Junior School.

For anyone that missed the event a video of the countdown can be found by visiting the Dronfield Eye Facebook page by clicking here.

Christmas Fest was also well attended on Saturday 2 December in the Civic Hall, with children enjoying the crafts on offer and Santa's Grotto.
