DECLARATION OF RESULT OF POLL

Christmas has arrived in Brixworth

The Parish Council would like to thank everyone for their positive comments regarding the Christmas trees and lights that went up in the village yesterday. Following feedback from you last year, the Parish Council decided to try and do something for Christmas 2016. In March two Councillors, Sandra Moxon and Jackie Bird along with our Clerk Emma Baker, set about investigating what we could do. After six months of work that included talking to local businesses, handling insurance issues, making sure that all health and safety issues were covered, resourcing the right trees and lights, they took delivery of 25 Christmas trees, 25 tree holders and 25 sets of lights.

Over the last two days, with fantastic support from the Parish Council grounds man, Marc Sugden and local resident, Miles Tildesley, Sandra and Jackie had all the trees in place.

Yesterday evening, with a clear sky and a crisp chill in the air, the lights went on and Brixworth felt just a little warmer and definitely festive.

Thank you to all the local businesses and organisations that agreed to host the trees and to everyone who worked so hard to make it possible.

We hope you enjoy them.
