It was a Busy 2018

Its all in the planning !

A Brand New Display

We asked, you told and we listened. This year sees the start of a brand new display starting on top of Master Key. Reminiscent from many years ago on top of Somerset Hall, we are bringing back a display that will be added to for years to come.  We received £1,000 prize money to spend at Blachere and we chose to spend this on a 12’ by 4’ reindeer and sleigh illuminated motif which will start us off this year.

Illuminating trees on 2nd and 3rd traffic islands on Wyndham Way 

We illuminated the first traffic island two years ago and this year we are going to complete the remaining two.

St. Peter's Church

We are going to upgrade the church tower's  LED light strings and enhanced it with some new colours.

St. Peter's Lodge

A new 10' Christmas tree with lighting will be erected in the grounds of St. Peter's Lodge. 

West Hill

Illuminate the trees on West Hill Triangle to continue the new work from last year. 

Festoon Cable

Every year we continue to replace the cable that holds the lights up and this year is no exception. 

Bulbs 

Our display is 100% LED, but we still need to replace broken bulbs. This year will we be buy around 1,000 new bulbs.

LED Strings  November 2018 marks the 100 year anniversary of the end of the First World War. In memory of this, trees which have new LED light strings will have a red, white and blue theme this Christmas.

General Maintenance 

There is always maintenance to carry out! Throughout the year we replace plugs, power boxes, tree holders, scaffold holes... just to name a few.
