Christmas Lights Switch On and Fair Nov 30, 2017

Everyone in the Gorbals community is invited to this free annual event on Tuesday 5th December.

Join us at Crown Street for 3.30pm as we count down to the big Christmas light switch on. There will be hot drinks, sweets and treats provided, and the Gorbals Childrens Choir will be there to entertain you with some festive favourites.

Afterwards you can head round to the St Francis Centre on Cumberland Street. The centre will be open from 4.30pm - 6.30pm and will be hosting local entertainment and activities, as well as some surprises for the kids.

The Christmas Fair will also include a guest appearance from Santa! He will also be collecting your Christmas letters, so look out for the special post box and our letter station. Don't forget to put your full name and address so that Santa can write back to you!

Gorbals Library and Crown Street Co-op will also be joining in with the celebrations, so pop in to see what festive treats and activities they have on during the lights switch on.

As usual, we will also be collecting food bank donations at Crown Street, so please donate if you can. New Gorbals Housing Association will also accept donations throughout December.
