Laragh Christmas Tree Big Switch On 

A huge thanks to everyone who helped to put up the Christmas Lights around the village over the weekend. We had a beautiful sunny morning. A special thanks for a huge effort and a job very well done.  We have plenty more to do next Sunday and we are hoping for a sunny day again. Thank you, as always to Lynhams of Laragh for providing food to the volunteers.

We would be very grateful if you could donate any small amount towards our Christmas Lights this year. It remains difficult to fundraise so we will be relying on community and business donations for 2021. Go to Laragh Christmas Lights 2021 at
