So there won't be any of our usual Christmas Lantern making workshops this half term, but we will be making some fantastic Halloween inspired Art instead in our regular half term Creative Kids sessions.  If you need more information on the decision to pause the Parade this year please contact Rhiwbina Events Committee on Facebook, which is chaired by Eleanor Sanders. The Rhiwbina Christmas Festival is still going ahead on Saturday November 30th.
