On Saturday we went to watch the Winter Lights being switched on in 'Sunnyboy's Road'. This event was part of a new project to decorate the entire length of the road during the dark winter nights.
First we gathered in the local Deaf Centre for refreshments and music.
Sunnyboy had a great time dancing to the brass band.
Then we all went outside to watch the lights being switched on.
The lights are not especially spectacular but they do brighten up the road and the plan is for more decorations to be added each year. Our road is a vibrant, multicultural and thriving area of our city with a strong sense of community and diverse shops and businesses, most of which are independent traders. We're looking forward to seeing the many festive window displays which will be ready for the Winter Fair at the beginning of December.
