Community floats chosen for Christmas Parade

Six community groups have been selected to be part of the Christmas Parade and Lights Switch On. They will now descend upon the city centre on floats that they will design and produce before the extravaganza.

The six groups were chosen from over thirty excellent applications submitted during October and they will receive an eight metre trailer, festoon lighting and £100 of vouchers from the "Trade Depot" towards materials.

Themes for the floats will range from "the 12 days of Christmas", "Panto over the years" and "Christmas at East Side High".

The winning entrants included St Thomas Community Centre, Tylwyth Teg Community Group, St Judes Community Pantomime Society, Penclawdd Primary SchoolParents Association, The View Community House and HafodPrimary School.

Special Events Manager Dave Price Deer said "It was very exciting to go through all the applications, I can't wait too see how the designs come to fruition".

"The Wave & Swansea Sound" will be awarding a cash prize of £1000 to the best turned out community float.

The Swansea Christmas Parade and Lights Switch On is back by popular demand and will take place on Sunday November 18th. The parade leaves Swansea's Guildhall at 5pm before making its way up St Helens Road and Kingsway before making its way down Wind Street.

City Centre entertainment will be from 11am and there will also be opportunities to choose that perfect Christmas gift in Swansea's excellent High Street stores.
