We loved being part of this fantastic community event which was created by a team of dedicated local volunteers to breathe life back into New Romney with an amazing Lantern Parade through through the High St, combined with late night shopping and an arts and craft market. Hundreds of local residents attended a series of completely free workshops to create their own lanterns and join in with the parade which was led by the local Mayor and Father Christmas himself !
Old School Samba performed outside of the Assembly rooms to start with before joining in with the parade. We've never seen so many people line the streets and the whole town was buzzing, such a great, inclusive event bringing the whole community together. To top it all we even made it into the local ITV news bulletin !
