Welcome to the Official Website of Xewkija Local Council
On Monday 29th August our community celebrates the feast of the Beheading of St. John the Baptist and this year for the very first time the Local Council organized the two-day activity Fiori d'Argenta, with Monday being the second day of festivities.
On Monday Socjeta' Filarmonika Prekursur entertained those present with a band concert in the local square which was followed by a traditional ghana session. Towards the end of the event following the lighting of the traditional huggiega ta' San Gwann there was the cutting of the traditional Torta tal-Bajtar. The younger ones were also entertained with several games which were held in between the musical concert.
