Light touch

A Sheffield-based New Deal for Communities (NDC) scheme last week launched a Carnival of Light in a bid to brighten up the area through the winter. Burngreave NDC has decorated the trees in Ellesmere Green with fairy lights as part of a multi-cultural celebration to honour 'light' during the darkness of the next four months. To celebrate the festival, a costume carnival was held, with stalls, DJs, street dancers, stilt walkers and fire walkers.
