Procession of Light

Arkholme’s first Procession Of Light was a fantastic evening, which was incredibly well attended despite the rain!




The lanterns looked magical leading the way up Main Street, stopping at various points along the way to hear the story of Christmas. Members of the school choir sung for us once we got back to school and the refreshments which were provided by Arkholme with Cawood Parish Council were enjoyed by all.




Thank you to everyone who helped, came along and took part in the event, it was a great event attended by the whole community.
