This was the first event to be held at the new community centre located beside the parish church and it was well supported by local people.

The parents association of the local National School organised the festive day. Parents, teachers and staff within the school combined to provide festive cheer in the run up to Christmas.

Deputy principal Eleanor Cullinane was busy behind the cake stall ably assisted by Duncannon NS school secretary Ursula Culleton, learning support teacher Rachael Chapman and Catherine Dennis, one of the school's SNA's.

The Christmas hamper consisted of goods donated by local businesses and parents was drawn, and the main winners were Jack Nolan and Carole White.

Mulled wine, mince pies teas and coffees were served by parents and local crafts people exhibited their wares and a great day was rounded off with carols and hymns being sung by the children from St Oliver's N.S. in Duncannon. Principal Martin Lyons was the jolly MC for the day and Amanda Kehoe played the festive music.
