Local MP Chris Elmore got into the Christmas spirit last week by attending the Llanharan Lantern Parade.
Mr Elmore commented: “It’s been great to see local residents from Llanharan, Brynna, Bryncae, Llanharry and further afield coming together for this special event.
Prior to the event, a free lantern making workshop was held in late November at the Community Christmas Fayre at Llanharan Welfare Hall.
Residents who joined the parade were also treated to soup and a communal sing song at the Welfare Hall.
Mr Elmore continued: “I’d like to thank Maria Thomas, Sarah Liney and all of the volunteers who made this event possible.”
