7th December 2010 - Chris Evans MP lights up Christmas in Pontywaun

Chris Evans MP lights up Christmas in PontywaunTo the sound of Christmas carols by the Crosskeys Silver Band, Islwyn MP, Chris Evans got Pontywaun in the festive mood by officially turning on the village’s Christmas lights.

Families from all over Pontywaun and the surrounding area were on hand to witness the village being lit up just in time for Christmas.

The Christmas lights were made possible by the Christmas Lights Fundraising Group that works in the community throughout the year to raise funds to ensure that Pontywaun is lit up throughout the Christmas period.

Mr Evans said, ‘It gave me great pleasure to officially switch on the lights and I pay tribute to the tremendous work that the Christmas Lights Fundraising Group puts in each year to ensure that everyone can enjoy the Christmas lights.’ 

Following the official switch on, the crowd was paid a visit by Father Christmas who had come all the way from Lapland on his sleigh to see the Christmas lights in Pontywaun and to deliver gifts to local children.
