Daventry Town Council's second lantern making workshop was another success. Held on Saturday 21st November in the main hall of Daventry's Community Centre and people's creativity, once again, shone through including our own Daventry Mayor, Cllr Wendy Randall and Cllr Ron Fox who both came along to help out and make their own unique lanterns.
The Mayor commented "It was a fantastic morning and so good to really involve the community in this way." As well as running the two free workshops Daventry Town Council has also provided free materials for 250 children from various youth organisations enabling them to make their own lanterns to take part in the parade.
