A magical evening as Christmas lights were switched on for Boldon CA.

Christmas comes to East Boldon as Sunderland AFC legend Jimmy Montgomery turns on festive lights

Sunderland football legend Jimmy Montgomery was guest of honour for Boldon Community Association as the Christmas lights were switched on for 2022.

The celebrations got underway on Friday, November 25 as the lights were turned on and members of the community gathered for Boldon CA’s Christmas Festival at Boldon Community Centre, which also featured refreshments, rides and stalls. And it was a magical start to the Christmas season for many families, who turned out to enjoy the fun.
