Carols by candlelight

Future Generation Dancers Milycha Parsons, 2, Ezra Jacobs and Skylah Baxter, both 5, dance to Santa Claus Is Coming to Town.

Youngsters brought good cheer to Beacon Valley with song, dance and prayer at a carols by candlelight programme at a netball pitch in Hockey Crescent on Saturday December 11.

Pictured at the back, from left, are Ernestine Jacobs, Joy Brown, Brent Murray, Mishka Parsons, her daughter Liche, and her grandmother Elaine. In front are Liezel Parsons, Lindi Jacobs and Lynette Murray.

Co-ordinator Brent Murray, Beacon Valley neighbourhood watch youth member, said the event held was to remember those who had lost their lives to gangsterism and gang violence.

“It was also a word of encouragement to tell youth that there are alternatives,” he said.
