Photos and Poem from our Christmas Tree Event

Christmas Tree Lighting EventThank you to everyone in the community who came out to turn on the Christmas Lights over the weekend.

A lot of people helped in the preparation and planning and local businesses also gave support.

Thank you to everyone who made it a very special night for the children and the community.

Below is Martin Swords’ poem he wrote especially to mark the event.

Remember, Remember

We remember

“’Twas the night before Christmas*

When all through the house

Not a creature was stirring

Not even…………”

We remember Reindeer

“Now, Dasher!, now ,Dancer!,

Now, Prancer and Vixen!

On, Comet!, on, Cupid

On,………, and ………”

We remember.

We remember Family and Friends

Living and working abroad.

Or Departed from us.

We remember them around

The Christmas Tree

And in the stars above.

We Remember
