Lane End starts its Christmas celebrations
CHRISTMAS celebrations officially started in Lane End on Friday night.
The festive lights were switched on outside the village hall before residents warmed up inside with mulled wine and mince pies.
The Lane End Primary School and the churches in the village sang carols to those gathered.
Vice chairman of Lane End Parish Council, Graeme Coulter, said the pupils sang very well and were a credit to their teachers.
On the Saturday the Lane End Twinning Association held an arts and craft market in the hall followed in the evening by a Christmas dinner and dance to local band, Whipjack.
The primary school also held a Christmas fair on Saturday.
Cllr Coulter, said: "It went very well. I think it has built up a bit.
"It started off quite low key. "It is excellent in the way we have a celebration between the Youth and Community Centre, the council, the village hall, the twinning association and the local school."
About 17 people from the village's twin town in France, Saint-Pierre d'Oléron came over and joined in the activities.
