On Saturday 16th November Spen Valley Scout & Guide band were joined by local school choirs and the big man himself Santa Claus for the annual Christmas Lights Switch on in Cleckheaton.
Donning Santa hats to add to the festive spirit the band led the parade and Santa around Cleckheaton. Santa and his helpers then carried out the big light switch on to welcome cheers by the crowds of people watching, a fantastic firework display then followed. Well done to all band members that took part, you played brilliantly and the spectators looked to enjoy the performance.
Carl Nelson, District advisor for Bands commented “It’s always great to play in Cleckheaton and show the local community what scouting and guideing can offer.”
