JLA Proud to Sponsor 2016 Ripponden Christmas Festival

There was a great turnout for this year’s Ripponden Christmas Festival, which JLA proudly sponsored. The market featured more than 35 stalls offering local produce, handmade crafts and artisan Christmas presents, providing a bespoke touch to the event. A barrel organ played festive music, mulled wine and cider was readily available and Santa Claus popped in to listen to requests for Christmas gifts – and to find out who had been naughty or nice this year!

We are thrilled to have been a part of such a great local Christmas festival, which also raised funds for St. Bartholomew’s Church, whose presence in the area dates back to the 1400s and whose current building is nearly 150 years old.
