Families and businesses across Rothwell have been getting in the festive spirit with a window Christmas trail event.

More than 200 homes and businesses have taken part by decorating their homes, windows and gardens.

The event has been running daily since the start of December between 6pm and 9pm and will run until Christmas Eve, with families looking for a Covid-safe Christmas activity able to purchase a map and follow the trail.

So far it's raised more than £1,300 for Rothwell Citizens' Welfare, a charity which raises funds for the Rothwell community such as providing vouchers for the over 70s at Christmas and keeping local traditions such as the carnival alive.

Organiser Rachel Stevenson said: "I would like to say a huge thank you to all the volunteers who have decorated their homes and businesses as this wouldn’t be possible to do without all their hard work."

To take part in the event maps detailing all the homes and businesses taking part are still available to anyone who emails [email protected]
