Christmas Market Cancellation - Parish Council response

Home » Newsroom » Christmas Market Cancellation
Xmas tree

The Parish Council noted with regret that the organizers of the Christmas Market, due to be held on 30th November, had cancelled the event because of serious problems in obtaining adequate insurance coverage.
The event had become a welcome addition to the Christmas celebrations in the Parish and the Parish Council had been happy to allocate £300 towards toward the event.
Organizers are very confident that the event can be staged next year.

Christmas has not been cancelled entirely however!

The Parish Council provides significant financial assistance towards the provision of Christmas trees and decorations for the High Street which provide much needed cheerfulness during the dark days of December. Installing and decorating the trees is done by a willing band of volunteers, but it is a very small band and they would be delighted to have a few more helpers. A general call for strong arms and backs will go out later and all that is needed is a few hours on Saturday morning 30th November.
The other event unaffected by the cancellation of the Street Market is the Christmas Tree Festival held in the Methodist Church, which will go ahead as usual.
