Nominate someone to switch on

the Christmas lights

THE Mayor of Nantwich, Councillor Arthur Moran, has launched a search for worthy guests of honour to turn on Nantwich’s Christmas lights - planning for the annual event is almost complete.

   Over the years there have been various line-ups to turn on the lights including celebrities. However, this year felt the Mayor felt the town’s younger VIPs should get a chance to turn on the lights.

  To nominate a worthy candidate send a nomination to ntc.marketing@nantwichtowncouncil.gov.uk or drop it off at Nantwich Civic Hall.  Nominations should include your name, address, contact number, the person you wish to nominate and why they deserve to turn on the town’s Christmas lights.

   This year the event will take place on Friday, November 15, and will include a mini-market selling a selection of gifts, treats and food from 12noon, and an array of entertainment, including a set from UK Bjorn on The Square from 4pm. 

   Father Christmas will make an appearance before the switch on and a spectacular fireworks display will be staged by Blitz Fireworks around 7pm.
