Bailieborough Christmas Lights:

There was great excitement amongst the huge crowd gathered at the Market Square and on Main St., on Saturday evening last with the traditional ‘Switching –On’ of the Bailieborough Christmas Lights. Christmas Carols and music was provided by the Bailieborough School of Music, children from the local schools and local choristers, ‘Hardtimes Chorus’.

Santa and his Elves arrived on his sleigh (Santa’s sleigh was driven in by Martin McGuinness and this sleigh was made by Richard Kinnear and stored and repainted by Peter Reilly from Active Agri) to the great amazement of all the young children present. Santa was accompanied by the Active Agri Tractor Parade of Lights, whose tractors and other vehicles, were well turned out for the Christmas Run.

This year, Mr William Townley turned on the lights on—for those in the Community that are too young to remember, Willie put up the lights and looked after them for between 25 to 30 years. This is Bailieborough’s way of saying ‘Thanks’ to him and his son Thomas for all the years of hard work and to acknowledge the fact Willie and his generation volunteered in their community and that is not lost in today’s world! Everything went to plan, when all the dazzling lights lit up, to give the town a very Christmassy feel. The children and their parents, then had the opportunity to visit Santa and his Elves in his Grotto.

This year’s lights are magnificent, with everyone commenting on how great they look! It would be well worth one’s while to come along to the town, just to see this terrific display.

Christmas Shoe-Box Appeal:

Inner-City Helping Homeless are appealing to people to make a small difference for someone who is down on their luck at the moment, remember charity begins at home! Last year the support we received from the public was unbelievable as we received over 20,000 shoeboxes over the Christmas period. These shoeboxes were checked and distributed to homeless adults and children right across the country and brought a smile to so many faces over Christmas.

The idea is simple. Wrap a shoebox and mark it Male or Female. In the shoebox you can put the likes of: Hats, Scarves, Gloves, Underwear, Socks Toiletries: *No aerosols, perfumes, aftershaves, mouthwash or hand sanitizers—Christmas Card or Chocolate.

If you would like to donate a shoebox to a homeless child, please specify the child’s age and whether they are male or female.
