Xmas lights to be ‘scaled down’
This year’s Christmas lights switch-on event in Sandbach is due to be “scaled down”, following the surprise retirement of the couple who had organised the provision of lights in the town for decades.
Sandbach Town Council’s Community and Environment Committee was set to approve the council’s revised plans to provide the event at a meeting last night (Wednesday).
The switch-on event has been delegated to the town’s Events Committee since the transfer of the assets from Elsie and Graham Alcock, who disbanded the Christmas Lights Comm-ittee after more than 20 years.
The council has since been in discussions about providing the switch-on event, which is scheduled for 30th November.
