Preparations underway for Johnstown’s Christmas light switch on

Preparations are underway for the Johnstown Christmas lights switch.

Taking place on November 25 there will be plenty of festivities for people to enjoy, including more than 20 stalls selling gifts, crafts, hot food and mince pies.

Children will also have the chance to see the man himself with Father Christmas visiting on Santa’s float and at his grotto.

To add to the festivities there will be Christmas carols from pupils at Ysgol Yr Hafod.

Lots of of prizes donated by local businesses will also be available as part of the Christmas raffle.

A road closure will be in place on 25 November from the junction of Offa Street, near the Post Office from 5.30pm until 8pm.

Access to businesses and residents will be maintained.

Speaking on behalf of Johnstown Community Group, Councillor David A Bithell said he hoped the event will once again be well attended “as the lights switch starts off the festive period.”

He added: “We have refined our event over the last two years following the pandemic and we hope this year can return to normal.

“All monies raised will go back and support local community groups.

The event is supported by Fryfresh, Quantum Traffic Management and Rhos Community Council.
