Due to the Covid -19 restrictions the Town Council is not able to have the usual Christmas Switch On Event this year so it was decided to invest the funds it would have normally spent on the event in new lights, as a way of brightening the Town and allowing the whole community to celebrate Christmas. The Town Council also decided to employ a Contractor to install, erect and remove the new Town Christmas Lights including all relevant safety checks and licences.
Unfortunately, an incident occurred on Wednesday 25th November, whereby some damage occurred to the front of one of the buildings in The Square when the contractors were installing the Christmas lights. The area was immediately made safe, fortunately no one was hurt, and the matter is now being dealt with by the contractors Insurers and the insurers acting for the owner of the building concerned.
The Town Council will ensure that Christmas lights will still be going up but on a smaller scale than was originally intended and will be slightly delayed so please bear with us.

The small number of children who have been in close contact with the individual who has tested positive for coronavirus (COVID-19) have received a letter informing them that their child must stay at home for 14 days from the point of contact. The school remains open and your child should continue to attend as normal if they remain well.
School transport has not been affected in this instance. All school buses will run as usual.
We look forward to seeing our traders back. Covid Restrictions will be in place.
