Christmas lights blackout off as council takes over
The Christmas lights in Sandbach will be provided by the town council for the foreseeable future after the couple who had previously organised their installation decided to quit.
Councillors voted on Thursday to find an outside company to help with the installation this year, but would take full responsibility for the provision of the lights in future years.
Elsie and Graham Alcock disbanded the Christmas Lights Committee at the start of August, having been the driving force behind the provision of lights in the town for 20 years.
