Some great work by local people to make sure kids enjoyed the night appropriately during this pandemic.
It was though a shame that one very prominent local house with an amazing display on the outskirts of Crosspool had a crowd of youngsters, teens and young adults outside that must have been 50 deep, with not a hint of social distancing. All while the PM was on his feet announcing the new lockdown. Very alarming.
