Record number for lantern walk

Have your say

DELIGHTED organisers of a community event in Warmsworth say they attracted a record attendance this year.

The Warmsworth Lantern Walk, arranged annually at the end of October or the start of November, attracted 250 youngsters this year.

They walked a round circuit starting and finishing at Warmsworth Community Centre, via Warmsworth Quarry Park.

The idea of the walk is to get youngsters out and getting some exercise.

Georgina Mullis, who is among the organisers of the lantern walk, said: “I want to say a big thank you to everyone who came out for the walk.

“It was absolutely fantastic and it was the best turn-out we have ever had as far as I’m aware.”
