Get ready for new lights
5:00pm Wednesday 23rd October 2013 in News
EVESHAM will be full of festive cheer this year as a new set of Christmas lights brightens up the town centre.
For the first time the decorations, funded by Evesham Town Council and to be switched on Saturday, November 23, will include a number of trees in the town centre, which will be illuminated, including some along Vine Street and outside the Almonry Museum.
The new scheme is costing £52,000 and covers the next three years, with the decorated trees expected to become a feature at other times during the year as well.
Stuart Carter, town clerk, said: “This is another key investment into the town and comes at an important time for the fortunes of our retail and office businesses who are having to deal with the disruption caused by the bridge closure.
“We are determined to give Christmas a real boost in the town and hope everyone who comes into Evesham will like and enjoy the new displays.”
The new lights are being provided by The Festive Lighting Company.
Businesses wishing to be a Christmas lights sponsor and get recognised for their support on banners around decorated trees should call Mr Carter on 01386 47070.
