MCA Light Up Menston Group


Menston Christmas Lights 2021 – December 4th at 5pm at Kirklands


MCA’s Light Up Menston group has been meeting for some months now in order to plan this year’s Christmas Lights.  Last year the group decided to arrange “Doorstep Carols” in place of 2019’s crowded event marking the lights switch on;  12 additional trees were lit up and there were 3 new lamp post displays and a bigger tree at Kirklands.  Fund raising by this group last year has increased the funds available to make further improvements for this year. 


This year there will be an actual event and it will be mainly outdoors at Kirklands so that everyone can stay safe with the continuing concerns about Covid.  The plan is that FOMPS will be arranging events for children in the afternoon, culminating in the Switching On of the lights at 5pm.  Following that there are plans for Mulled Wine, food and music all being well for the remaining adults.


However, Menston’s elves aren’t getting any younger and so could do with a hand from a few younger volunteers who are, for instance,  prepared to climb ladders to decorate trees with lights , or help erect and man barriers for the switch on event.  More details are here


Planning continues and more will be revealed nearer the date.
