This year’s lighting ceremony took place on Friday 8th December, and the attendance was high – despite the chilly conditions. Aled Powys Williams, Classical Brit Award Winner and former member of Only Men Aloud turned on the Station Road lights, and announced the arrival of Santa. He then treated the crowds to a few carols of his own. The three main trees were lit by the Festival Queen and her attendants.
Many thanks to all for the hard work in setting up the trees, lights, stalls, entertainment and refreshments – much enjoyed by all who took part – and to those who came along and contributed to this year’s Charity: Alzheimer’s Society Cymru.
