Morriston’s five Labour councillors are pledging to deliver a ‘bigger and better’ annual Christmas lights switch on this year.
The Morriston switch on, to be held on Friday, November 22, is one of the most keenly awaited Christmas events of the year in and around Swansea.
And this is the sixth year that the five councillors – Robert Francis-Davies, Ceri Evans, Yvonne Jardine, Andrea Lewis and Rob Stewart – have sponsored the event.
The festivities start at 4.30pm with a fireworks display after the switch-on at 6pm.
“The crowds are getting bigger every year and we’d like to thank all of those who support this increasingly popular community event,” said Cllr Evans.
Added Cllr Lewis: “We are absolutely delighted to see Morriston choirs, Morriston RFC, Morriston Ladies and Tabernacle Choir as well as Morriston Primary Schools playing an active part in our community Christmas celebrations again this year.
“We would also like to thank the Fire Service and the Police for their ongoing support.”
The event includes Kev Johns, The Wave, and a number of choirs – Morriston Ladies choir, Morriston RFC Choir, the Tabernacle Choir and the Combined Morriston Schools Choirs – as well as a children’s lantern parade.
There will be a Morriston Christmas Market, Mid & West Fire Service and South Wales Police and Swansea Council with Father Christmas arriving on his Polar Express Train.
“It’s just great family entertainment – it’s a-must-be-at-event for the people of Morriston and beyond,” added Cllr Francis-Davies.
