Debbie to flip switch

MIRFIELD'S very own weather presenter will be swapping her map for the light fantastic at this evening's switch on.

Real radio DJ and ITV weathergirl Debbie Lindley, who was born in the town, will switch on Mirfield’s Christmas light display at 6.30pm outside the Black Bull pub, on Huddersfield Road.

Father Christmas will also be there, arriving on his sleigh just before the switch on. The Salvation Army band will play carols and fair-trade refreshments will be provided at the Salvation Army hall. Children can write their letter to Santa and post it in a special bin in Mirfield library to receive a reply.
