The Lantern Parade took place on the 3rd December and was a great success. Thanks to all who attended and to the volunteers/marshalls who ensured the parade was carried out in a safe manner. A big thank you to Santa too.
We are now looking to plan for this year’s event and details will appear in our Newsletter later in the year.

What a great turnout for the start of the festive season.

Thanks to the Volunteers who acted as Marshalls. Police and Community First Responders, Raynet who provided the communications along the route to ensure the parade operated in a health and safety manner to protect the children and families on route.

Also many thanks to the Staffordshire Corps of Drums who so smartly led our parade. Lastly big thank you to Santa for being part of the parade at his busiest time of the year. Best wishes for a Happy Christmas to all residents of the village.


The annual Lantern Parade will take place on Sunday 3rd December leaving from the Community Centre, Brownhills Road, Norton Canes.
Parade leaves Community Centre at 5 p.m. so please be at the Community Centre at 5.45 p.m. to sort out the lanterns.

Look out for further details in the Village Newsletter and on facebook. Keep the date in your diary as this is always a popular event for the family and the start of the festive season.

Children will be making lanterns at the local schools and at the brownie and scout groups. All residents are encouraged to attend and there will be some lanterns available on the day but on a first come first serve basis as it is always difficult to gauge how many people will attend.
