A local businessman is calling on owners of premises from houses to shops and offices to join in a ‘Making the Town Glow’ project; a creative idea to add colour to the town over the festive period. Graham Burgess of the Weir is encouraging everyone in each of the five main streets leading from Whitchurch Square to participate by adding colour to their windows.

Make the Street twinkle
The idea is a simple one. By placing a sheet or even a small piece of coloured cellophane in a lighted window the street scene can be transformed. Graham says “You can do a simple stamp effect to help make the street twinkle or something at a larger scale”.

Different colours have been determined for the five roads, each linked to something that gives the street some of its character.

Graham says that the Town Hall represents the whole of the community so that will be like a rainbow.

The street colours are:

BLUE: Bell Street
PURPLE: Newbury Street
RED: London Street
GREEN: Winchester Street
YELLOW: Church Street

Sheets of the cellophane will be available from Paynes in the Square.

Projection of colour
In addition to the colour-themed streets an exciting part includes projection of colour onto various buildings. These are provisionally planned to be on to the White Hart and above Lloyds Chemist. Test projections are to take place this coming Monday (28th) if anyone would like to help. The aim is that it will all be in place for the Christmas light switch on this Thursday evening.
