Drybrook Christmas Lights
Each year the parish council erects the village Christmas lights display.
The hire contract for the existing lights ran out last year and we are now sourcing a new display.
In addition, this year we had the lights electrical circuit checked for safety and found that it needs to be fully replaced at a cost of around £6000. The Parish Council have agreed to cover this cost, but it leaves the budget for the light display itself short.
To ensure that the village can have a good display we are approaching suppliers to supply, fit and look after the village light display and we now have a rough estimate of cost for each item within the display.
The old display consisted of seven string garlands crossing the road and seven wall/lamp post displays.
At a cost of around £300 per wall/lamp post display and £1500 per garland this would be considerably more than the £12000 budget that the Parish Council has allocated to the electrical works and the Christmas Lights themselves.
We are therefore looking for some sponsorship. Ideally funding a wall/lampost light display at a costs of £300 or £1500 for a string display. However, any sum that is donated would be gratefully appreciated and sponsors would be recognised both online and on a thank you to sponsors banner displayed in the village centre
