toilet

This year’s Christmas lights were a great success, with the vast majority of the lights staying on over the entire Christmas period!  In total 9 new features were built (see images below),  the lights in the weir were completely remade and 3 new sets of fairy lights were put in the tree by the river.  Hundreds of the festoon bulbs were also replaced.

Money for all of this came from grants from the Yorkshire Avalanche Dodgers, the Cuckoos’s Nest,  monies made at last years event, from collection boxes and from local businesses sponsoring the programme.

We even got three articles in the examiner regarding the much talked about toilet design –
