Yeadon Town Hall sparkles as light festival returns

December 13, 2016 7:44 PM

The annual Tree of Lights festival returned to Yeadon Town Hall on Monday (12th December), and was a great success for all who attended.

With performances from the Aireborough Gilbert and Sullivan society, Brassneck Theatre group, Yeadon Amateur Dramatic society and Yeadon Charities group, the crowds were kept entertained all evening long, while Rufford Park Primary sang carols and Christmas songs.

The lights were switched on by Alison Anslow, head teacher at Rufford Park Primary, and each light represented someone special to those who had attended or donated. Donations had been collected over the festive period for the organisers of the event, Yeadon Town Hall Users Group, to help pay for the enhancements to the Town Hall that they organise all year round.

Cllr Ryk Downes, (Lib Dem, Otley and Yeadon), who was MC for the evening, said:

"The whole night was wonderful to be part of. The performances were sterling; everyone had fun and there were more people this year than ever before!

"It was a special moment for me, reading out the names of all those loved by the people who had attended or donated, particularly as some are no longer with us. The moment of quiet reflection to think about them was appreciated by all.

"Every year this is a great night for all Aireborough residents, and I hope everyone enjoyed themselves."
