whit-xmas-2016-03-smPlans are being formulated for the town’s celebrations for Christmas as December edges nearer. For some the usual panic will set in, while for others planning has already started!

Christmas in Whitchurch
As usual the local launch event and the Christmas lights switch on is wholly arranged by local volunteers and a call for ideas and support is now being made. last year saw the lights massively improved after some hard local fundraising, while the colourful lantern procession was the culmination of some excellent sessions of creative construction in the preceding weeks.

So for 2018 what would people like to see, and can they help with it?

Colin Reeves, who started the lantern processions, is very keen to see the traditional lights-switch-on evening grow into a bigger community event. He has called a meeting for anyone who has ideas or would like to be involved, so put the date in the diary:


Tuesday 25th September, 2018
7.00pm Whitchurch Town Hall
