Victorian Christmas Success!

The Warley Victorian Christmas Fayre was once again a great success last Saturday when crowds of visitors descended on the village school to enjoy the festive atmosphere.  The kids had a great time playing splat the rat and buzzwire and getting involved in other activities, whilst the adults spent their brass on crafts made by the Warley Circle, home made cakes and a fantastic tombola.  Father Christmas was there in his grotto and also led revellers to the village centre at 4pm for the traditional switch on of the Christmas Lights by the Mayor of Calderdale and her consort.  This was followed by carol singing led by the choir from St John’s church who were dressed to the nines in Dickensian attire.

Thanks go to everyone who organised the event, those who made crafts and cakes or donated prizes and of course to everyone who showed up to kick Christmas off in fine style!

Village Christmas Tree to be even more Festive this Year!

For as long as anyone can remember, the traditional Christmas Tree on the site of the 19th Century village maypole has lit up our lives at this time of year and this year’s tree is bigger and better than ever before.

In previous years, the Council have limited the lighting of the tree to the hours of darkness and many people have commented on how much more festive the village would be if the lights were on all the time.

The Council have now informed us that they have changed the policy this year and all their trees throughout Calderdale will be lit up ’24/7′ throughout the festive period.

If you need more information on this decision, please ring the Community Association Chairman on 01422 839458
