Maghera full of festive cheer as it lights up for Christmas

03 December 2018

Maghera was full of festive cheer this Saturday past (1st December) as Santa took up residence in Maghera Walled Garden for the afternoon, before turning on the Christmas lights in the town in front of a capacity crowd.

The day began in the Lurach Centre with lantern making, face painting, balloon modelling and letter-writing to Santa, before crowds moved to the Walled Garden. Mrs Claus was on hand to help post all the children’s letters back to the North Pole, along with festive Elves that lit up the Garden with a spectacular LED display.

At 6pm Santa was back on his sleigh to travel to Hall Street, to help Chair of Mid Ulster District Council, Councillor Sean McPeake count down to the switch on of the town’s Christmas tree and town centre lights.
