Light Up Lyneham

This year around 700 people joined in the Lantern Walk around the wetlands and festivities at the Lyneham shops on Saturday 4 August.

Some of the great activities that happened at the event included:
  • Lyneham Wetlands was lit with hundreds of lights, and amazing pond features, with the lantern walk around the Wetlands.
  • Prosperous Mountain Lion Dance group led the walk around the wetlands.
  • A fire twirler performed during the lantern walk (@pyromonkey).
  • We had music happening over the evening from the Lyneham High School (LHS) Senior Jazz Band, BASK – Alan Bradbury & Simon Kravis, Tim Bevitt, and Pete Lyon from the Cashews.
  • Food was provided by community stall holders and included sausages, hot spiced apple juice, soup, M&M cookies, cupcakes and ice cream.
  • There were over $700 of prizes given away from local businesses (NextGen health club, Lyneham Turkish Pide & Kebabs, The Front and Mee Sing), including:
    • Best lantern
    • Best clothing art
    • Voucher, as part of a draw, for people who signed up on the night to join the Lyneham Community Association
  • There was warm winter recycled clothing for sale.
It’s was a great fun family event and was successfully organised by the community!
