Prescot Residents were given the ‘White Christmas’ effect on Saturday as they were treated to another fantastic Christmas event.
Prescot Town Council’s new Christmas Cracker Event certainly went with a bang as those in attendance enjoyed a completely free afternoon of fun as the ‘snow fell all around them’. Attractions included entertainment from Local artists such as, Jamie Cushion (Prescot’s Got Talent Under 16’s Winner and Kids Voice UK), the amazing Prescot Primary School Choir, Jan Williams Theatre School, and Christmas supremo Keiron Kenny. Prescot Army Cadets were also on hand to provide a drill demonstration worthy of the changing of the guard, whilst other activities included an incredible Rodeo Reindeer (not a real one obviously) an alpine inspired snow board simulator provided a test of balance to any budding Billy Morgans or Jenny Jones’es of the future, whilst our younger residents enjoyed the tea cup ride and everyone got the chance to meet a few heroes as what felt like the entire cast of Disney were on hand to welcome everyone to the party, there were also some real super heroes around from world of Marvel and DC Comics helping to ensure we had no Jokers or Grinches at this event.
Town Councillors and staff were literally run off there feet providing roughly 500 free tea, coffees or hot chocolates along with mince pies to everyone one who wanted one and of course the Mayor of Prescot Cllr Pat Cook and Citizen of the Year Clare Duvall were on hand to carry out the annual selection pack giveaway, this year being supported by the youngest ever Mayor’s Consort her grandson Ethan Cook.
The Town Council would like to thank Prescot Parish Church, the Deans House, Imaginarium and especially Prescot Shopping Centre for fantastic loan of 8 gazebos.
Preparations for next year’s event are already under way !!
