Wet weather couldn’t dampen the festive spirit in Hunts Cross.
The annual Christmas tree lights switch-on took place but the wet weather meant that other events could not take place around the tree.
However, Hunts Cross Primary School came to the rescue by opening up their school hall for children, parents and visitors to enjoy a hot chocolate, mince pies and carols from the school choir.
Father Christmas gave out sweets and all the children who sang in the Choir received a gift from local councillors.
Councillor Rachael O’Byrne said: “This is a fantastic event we organise every year and despite the bad weather it was still a lovely afternoon. Thanks to Hunts Cross Primary School the day was saved!”
The event and Christmas Tree are funded by the Councillors’ Neighbourhood Fund and it is supported by Hunts Cross Primary School, LMH, Garston Rotary Club, Niblock Butchers, Hunts Cross Co-operative Supermarket, Peterson Collinson Services, St Columba’s Church, St Hilda’s Church and Merseyside Police.
