Diggle’s very important pupils (VIPs), winners of the Christmas art and writing competition organised by the Diggle Community Association, turned on the village Christmas lights on Sunday 3rd December following the annual carol singing and procession through the village. (See here)
Before walking with Diggle Band from the Band Club to the Christmas tree site at Warf Mill local residents, parents and children were treated to a fabulous ensemble of carols by the Diggle School Infant choir who with their actions and songs totally captured the hearts of everybody watching.
Rev. Duncan Rhodes led the Christingle service at Wharf Mill and following the switch-on of the Christmas tree lights, Diggle Band led the procession on to further celebrations at The Gate.
Special thanks go to Diggle School, the Diggle Community Association, Diggle Band and Band Club, Cllr. Nikki Kirkham, Rev. Duncan Rhodes, The Gate and everyone who helped on the day. This year’s event raised over £100 in support of the Children’s Society.
