Unfortunately its not me! However Daniella and I did meet this gentleman who starred in one episode of ‘The Secret Millionaire’ I have been told it’s a brilliant programme though I’ve never watched it myself. This photo was taken at the Redcar Christmas Light Switch On. Town Centre Management had organised a room at the Clarendon Hotel for artists to use for changing and to take breaks etc. We met him there. He was the celebrity who had been booked to turn on the lights. A very nice man.
The Redcar Christmas Light Switch On was brilliant in spite of the horrible weather. There was a lovely atmosphere on the High Street and even though it was cold and wet there were still plenty of smiling faces.The Jolly Good Productions Christmas Characters mingled with the crowds and brought smiles to the faces of the children and juggler Tom Rolfe mesmerized everyone with his fantastic juggling, unicycling and balloon modeling. Masses of people turned out to watch the parade completely undaunted by the rain which was falling steadily by 4.30pm.The lights were turned on at five o clock by The Secret Millionaire. What a great start to the festive season for the people of Redcar.
Below is Alf The Elf ( the tallest elf you’ve ever seen ) who helped to entertain the public during the build up to the light switch on. Apparently Santa had sent Alf to Redcar to find out who had been naughty and who had been nice. Alf spoke to lots of children to see if they have been good. Fortunately he was able to report back to Santa that there are no naughty ones in Redcar.
