The second Kirknewton Christmas Festival is nearly upon us – this year the glow sticks during the procession and the lighting of the Christmas Tree are free thanks to the Gala Committee. The new Kirknewton Choir will be performing for the first time at the tree and during the Christmas Family Craft and Food Fair. We also hope some of you will be getting your thinking caps on and do some sponsored events, such as the West Lothian Santa Run, for the ‘I Love Kirknewton’ Fundraising Challenge. Hope you have a great time!
Kirknewton Community Development Trust would like to thank all the community groups and organisations involved with the Kirknewton Christmas Festival, 30 Nov – 25 Dec 2012
We wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year
