Long Preston Village News
This will take place on Sunday 23 December from 3pm to 5pm. Everyone is invited to come and sing – just turn up at the Village Hall just before 3pm. No talent is needed! Song sheets will be provided but please bring a torch as Sunday is very close to the shortest day.
Unfortunately there will be no singing along the main road due to the noise and narrow pavements.
The route will end at the Boars Head.
A new Facebook Group ‘Long Preston Informed’ has been started for people to advertise upcoming local community events, notify suspicious activity/people, lost pets and so on:
On 11 November 2018, Long Preston commemorated the end of World War 1 with a memorial service on Maypole Green and a lighting of a bonfire on Beacon Coppy, one of 1400 around the country.
