Christmas in Frodsham

Frodsham was 'en fete' tonight with the Christmas Lights switch on and Santa's procession on Main Street.  I thought last year's festivities were brilliant.  This year surpassed last year's very high bar.  The chilly, sub-zero temperature and clear skies were the perfect backdrop for the festivities.  The craft and food stalls along Main Street added to the festive atmosphere.

Tonight was the grand unveiling of our new environmentally friendly - and hopefully long lasting - led Christmas lights.  Each bulb will use only 2w when compared with the 25w the old ones used.   They were deliberately designed to look like our old lights!  I thought the new lights in the trees along Church Street looked stunning.

A big thank you to everyone involved in putting on the show - the Festival Committee, the Stall Holders, Cllr Linda Brown who masterminded the Christmas Lights, all the support from the police and CWaC officers and Frodsham Foundation... absolutely brilliant ... many thanks.
