Villagers in Rodley are gearing up for a spectacular Christmas.
A Christmas craft fair will be held at The Owl on Saturday, November 25, with money raised going towards Rodley’s second-ever Christmas lights switch on and a tree for the village.
The grand switch on will take place in the village on Friday, December 1, from 7pm.
The events are organised by volunteers at Light Up Rodley, a local group set up to increase community activity in the village.
Also related to festivities, Light Up Rodley are hoping to produce a Rodley calendar for 2018 and are looking for 12 local businesses to sponsor it.
The group had also been planning a community Christmas tree to be placed by the canal but these plans had to be abandoned as the Canal and River Trust wanted to charge £400 to survey the area.
More details available on the Light Up Rodley Facebook page.
Beyond Christmas activities, Light Up Rodley are keen to set up a ‘little library’ where people can freely take and leave books from a foot-high box situated in the village.
