THE local highlight for 2012 will definitely be the long-awaited return of Clitheroe’s Torchlight Procession, on the evening of Saturday August 25th.
Book that in your new calendars and diaries now, as it promises to be a not-to-be-missed event.
The Torchlight Committee is well ahead with its preparations and meets regularly. Organisations from across the Ribble Valley are encouraged to join in.
Entry forms for the procession can now be downloaded from the Clitheroe Town Council’s website (www.clitheroetowncouncil.gov.uk) or collected from Clitheroe Town Hall, in Church Street, opposite the library.
The 2012 Torchlight Procession will celebrate two major national events next year – the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee and the London Olympic Games. The Torchlight Committee have set up a Facebook page about the event and users of the social networking website are encouraged to visit and contribute.
