A day of festive delights took place in Chapeltown on Friday with a Christmas market, light switch-on and Diwali celebrations at The Reginald Community Hub.

The event was organised by Chapeltown Development Trust and funded by the Inner North East Community Committee.

Coun Jane Dowson said: “Coun Eileen Taylor, Coun Mohammed Rafique and I would like to thank Chapeltown Development Trust who have pulled out all the stops tonight - turning the Reginald Centre into a wonderful hub for the festive market, lantern making, Santa’s grotto, storytelling and a host of crafts.

“It was our honour to open the event and turn on the festive lights this year.”
