To mark the start of the Christmas season, a festive community celebration is taking place at The Oval in Rose Hill on Saturday, 7 December.
Rose Hill residents are in for a festive treat with an official switch-on of the Christmas lights by Father Christmas, carol singing, music, and an international food festival. Father Christmas and his elves will spend their time talking to children, spreading festive cheer and hand out some presents!
Fran Gardner, Rose Hill Community Worker at GreenSquare, has organised the event with funding provided by the GreenSquare’s Big Lottery Fund grant. Fran explained: “Our light switch on event has become a tradition in Rose Hill and this year promises to be yet another fantastic community celebration!
“Although everyone in our community celebrates Christmas in different ways, this time of year is perfect for people of all cultures to come together with family and friends, to celebrate, socialise and have fun. I hope the residents of Rose Hill come along and enjoy getting into the spirit of things.
“This year’s event is being supported by 2Cousins Access, DW Contractors, SSE Contracting, and Dave Seamer Entertainments – all of whom are lending their time, staff and equipment to the GreenSquare Lottery team to make sure that the event is a really big success. We’re extremely grateful to these local businesses for their wonderful support.”
The lights will be officially switched on at 5pmand the celebration will continue until 7pm in the community centre at Rose Hill. For more information, please contact Fran Gardner on 07770324277 or keep up to date with the details via our Facebook page - www.facebook.com/RoseHillRP.
