Ma­jorettes to lead lantern pro­ces­sion

Rossendale Free Press - - News -

MA­JORETTES will lead a spec­tac­u­lar lantern dis­play pro­ces­sion.

The Light up the Val­ley Lantern Pro­ces­sion will leave Toll Bar Mill in Newchurch Road, Stack­steads at 6pm on Satur­day, Oc­to­ber 27, and make its way to Stack­steads River­side Park via the Rose ‘n’ Bowl.

The pa­rade is or­gan­ised by Stack­steads Coun­try­side Park Group (SCPG). Chair­man Su­san Hayhurst praised lead artist Ruth Evans and her son Felix, who have run free lantern-mak­ing work­shops in the build up to the event.

She said: “It was es­pe­cially nice when they co­in­cided with the Rossendale Art Trail and we had lots of ex­tra peo­ple call­ing into the mill and learn­ing all about the lantern pro­ces­sion.”

There will be spare lanterns avail­able to be car­ried along the route, led by the newly formed Rossendale Drum Ma­jorettes.

The pa­rade will go around Stack­steads Re­cre­ation Ground, fol­low­ing the river­side path and into The Glade.

The event is funded by Reaps Moss Com­mu­nity Fund, SCPG and Rossendale Com­mu­ni­ties Fund. Rossendale Drum Ma­jorettes are look­ing for do­na­tions for a Christ­mas fundrais­ing raf­fle. Visit their Face­book page.
