Cheswick Green Christmas Lights Switch On
Posted 24th November 2016
Comment on this
The Christmas lights on the tree by the Doctors will be turned on earlier this year on Monday 5th December. Unfortunately due to unforeseen circumstances not least of which were problems with the village hall, reluctantly it has not been possible to organise the usual switch on festivities. However the parish council hope to be able to set up the event again next year and have another successful celebration of the start of the Christmas season.
