I had been invited by Sue Knights, chair of governors,and Jill Wood, headteacher, at this amazing little primary school. This is the third year that the school has organised the lantern festival where children and their families and the team at the school carry their lanterns around the streets of Little London. It was wonderful to see so many families and friends gathering together to carry their home made and spectacular lanterns and to share and celebrate the magic of Little London Primary School.
It was a simple amazing gathering of this rich multicultural community and it was amazing to look back and see the string of multiculoured lanterns lights stretched around the streets and alleyways of Little London for about 500 metres. We followed the choir and we were followed by the Silver Sparrows steel pans. On our return to Little London Primary School everyone gathered together to share some food and drink and listen again to the brilliant little choir.
It was an amazing end to another great week here in Leeds.
