Hoole Christmas lights date

Local residents and local businesses have come together to ensure the annual Hoole Christmas Lights switch on for 2018 is a roaring success.

The Christmas lights switch on is set for Saturday 24th November and plans are progressing well for the annual event, which is a firm fixture in local calendars.  This year’s switch on will see a return to the original format – a family focused celebration in the centre of Hoole.

Plans for the evening include Christmas craft activities for children and families, mulled wine and festive food at the Community Centre.  Father Christmas is also expected to make an appearance! Other entertainment will take place along Charles St and Faulkner St, both before and after the switch on.

Commenting on the plans, Chair of the community group, Linda Hobbs, said: “It’s fantastic to see so much interest from local people, businesses and organisations in the Hoole community.  The support we’ve received so far has been overwhelming. We’re working to take the Christmas lights switch on back to its roots and support the original aim of a fun and family friendly event in the heart of the community.”

The Hoole Christmas Lights community group meets at the Community Centre at 7pm each Wednesday.  Membership is open to all residents, churches, businesses, organisations and interest groups in the local area, so if you’d like to get involved, please contact hoolechristmaslights@outlook.com or come along to the next meeting.
