Wil­liam to light up town

Hinckley Times - - NEWS -

SCHOOL­BOY Wil­liam Keyte will be guest of hon­our at the an­nual Christ­mas lights switch-on in Earl Shilton on Fri­day Novem­ber 24.

Seven-year-old Wil­liam won the chance to flip the switch for the town when he en­tered a com­pe­ti­tion to de­sign a poster to pro­mote the event back in Septem­ber, at the town show.

Wil­liam will be of­fi­cially turn­ing on the fes­tive il­lu­mi­na­tions at 7pm but the fun in the town will start at 5.30pm and con­tinue un­til 9pm with food, stalls and at­trac­tions in Wood Street.

Le­ices­ter­shire Co-Op Silver Band and singer Kerry Jean will be pro­vid­ing the sound­track for the event which will in­clude face paint­ing and fair­ground rides for chil­dren, a snow ma­chine, hog roast and fes­tive stalls.

Fa­ther Christ­mas will be at­tend­ing as the guest of Bar­well and Earl Shilton Lions Club, whose mem­bers will be pre­par­ing a special grotto to make him feel at home.

Free mince pies and warm drinks will be served in Earl Shilton Methodist Church, courtesy of Earl Shilton Town Coun­cil.
