2013 Christmas Carol singing and Santa’s Grotto

On Monday 2nd December the Community Council held a Carol Singing Event in the Tonyrefail Leisure Centre where there were approximately 600 – 700 people present which was an amazing turn-out and totally unexpected.
 
The Community Council would very much like to thank the Tonyrefail Gentlemen’s Songsters,  Tonyrefail Ladies Choir and representatives from The Cory Band who gave up their time to perform on the night.  Also special thanks to Mr. Trevor Jones who led the Carol Singing. 
 
The Community Council also provided the Lamp-post Christmas Lighting for the 1st time this  year and also took the opportunity to provide free of charge a Christmas Tree to local businesses in the Main Shopping area together with a large tree and lighting outside Hammonds which was provided free of charge  by The Lakeside Farm Park .
 
The Christmas lights were also lit on the 2nd December to coincide with the Christmas Carol Singing Evening
 
Christmas would not be Christmas without the appearance of Santa who provided each child with a free gift and the grotto was decorated beautifully thanks to ‘Edmunds’ and the local newsagents ‘Have We Got News For You’ who provided much of the decorations at the last hour.  We even had a Christmas Balloon Artistry courtesy of ‘Have We Got News for You’
 
The Community Council would like to thank the local Police for their attendance and especially PCSO Alan Blackburn for carrying out the main task of the evening to perfection..  Alan always goes over and above his duties in helping the Community – he is one special person and someone you can totally rely on.
 
Special thanks are also extended to Dan and Hayley from the Savoy Theatre and Hammonds for erecting and decorating the large Tree, also  Wayne Banfield for sourcing and organising the trees for the local shops and Councillor Paul Wasley for arranging the collection and delivery of the large tree. 
 
Finally as it was a ‘First’ for the community council we would like to thank the people of Tonyrefail who came up trumps making it a real Community event and for those who queued for Santa for their patience
