Christmas Lights Competition

Last Years Winner

It’s the run up to Christmas and for the third year running we are giving a prize to a household that has gone the extra mile to decorate the outside of the house. Size really doesn’t matter, town house, semi or detached the winner will be judged on effort and will receive a voucher and certificate to commemorate their victory.
This year the houses on Cheswick Place will also be included in the judging.

Cheswick Green, Advent Windows

Cheswick Green Methodist Church, Advent Windows. Each day in December a home or business in Cheswick Green will decorate a window or porch for people to view between 5.30-8pm that evening. So, on 1st December there will be one window by 24th December there will be 24 windows to see. Each window will be inspired by a Christmas Carol or song. This is not Blackpool illuminations just a bit of neighbourly fun! We hope that you enjoy spotting the Advent Windows as much as our volunteers will enjoy making them.

Children’s Competition
If you are quick at spotting which window is inspired by which carol/song and you are aged 12 or under we challenge you to join in our ‘Song Spotters Advent Window Competition’! All windows should remain visible for a few days between Christmas and New Year. Just put the dates in December and the name of the carol/song on a piece of paper (eg. 1st December – Silent Night, 2nd December – Jingle bells etc). Don’t forget to include your name, school class and a contact phone number. If you attend Cheswick Green Primary School you may return the form to the school office by Wednesday 10th January 2018 or alternatively post your entry through the letterbox at 72 Willow Drive. The prize will be a local Toy Shop voucher and the winner will be notified shortly after the deadline.

Access to Bloor Homes from Coppice Walk

It has come to our attention that Bloor Homes has written to the parish council stating their intention to access the site via Coppice Walk starting 30th October. Cheswick Green parish council are writing to both Bloor Homes and SMBC objecting to this. We would suggest that if residents object they should also address their concerns to both Bloor Homes and SMBC.
