Five young VIPs chosen for Christmas lights switch-on

IN his search for guests of honour to turn on Nantwich’s Christmas lights, the Mayor of Nantwich, Councillor Arthur Moran,  received so many very worthy applications making it a very difficult decision to choose a small selection.

   After careful consideration he has selected five young VIPs to join him on the switch-on stage this year.
   Those selected are inspirational having gone through more in their short lives than what many of us endure in a whole lifetime.
   Cara Morris will press the button with Lily-May Arden, Mason Taylor, Meghan Kewley and Georgy Capener.
   Proceedings on Friday, November 15, will start at 12 noon when the minimarket sets up along Churchyardside with a selection of gifts and treats.

   An array of entertainment will then follow on the stage in The Square from 4pm onwards, including a set from UK Bjorn.
   A guest appearance will be made by Father Christmas, before the lights switch on and spectacular firework display from Blitz Fireworks around 7pm.

   For full details on the lights switch on event visit www.nantwichtowncouncil.gov.uk
