Christmas Activities

Each Christmas the Council organises a Christmas Lights switch on event in each village. The events involve villagers coming together to watch the switch on of the Christmas Tree and Christmas street lights accompanied by festive music, free roast chestnuts, warming refreshments and mince pies. We would like to thank Coty for their generous contribution towards the purchase of the Christmas Tree in Seaton Delaval.

This year we were joined by villagers who came to watch the lights get switched on and join in the festive fun.

Christmas Lights Competition

Every year we hold a competition in all of the Seaton Valley village First Schools to design a Christmas light.  The standard of the entries from the children was very good this year and choosing a winner from each village was hard.

The winning designs were made into Christmas lights that were mounted on lamp posts for the people of the village to enjoy.
