Some of our readers have emailed me asking for information about What's On in St Helens over the 2007 Festive Period. I have done some research and managed to find out the following - with many thanks to St Helens Council
The week beginning Monday 17 December will see the shops staying open until 8pm every night up to and including Saturday 22 December.
As Christmas Day draws closer, the magical "Ex Terra Lucem" lantern procession will grace the Town Centre on Thursday 13 December, winding its way through the streets.
The Route - Church Square > Hardshaw Street >Victoria Square > Cotham Street > Ormskirk Street > Church Street and then returning to Church Square.
It will begin at 10.30am and will provide helpful tips for feeding birds throughout the winter. There will also be a a short illustrated talk, practical demonstrations, bird cake making and a short walk if the weather is favourable. This event is limited to 20 places so to book a place, or for more details, please telephone 01744 677772.
Children from the nearby Parish Primary School will be singing a selection of favourite Christmas carols and everyone is welcome to join in the festive fun.
The Valley Youth Band will be there and members of the public can take part in the concert which will have a full repertoire of traditional carols. For further details of the event, organised by the Friends of Mesnes Park and St. Helens Council Rangers, contact 01925 229021
