A local Co-op store has donated hundreds of pounds towards festive goodies for a village Christmas lights switch-on.
The Co-op in Norden centre has donated £205 to the Norden Environmental and Economic Village Association ahead of the big Christmas lights switch-on on Thursday 29 November.
Chairman of NEEVA, Paul Ellison commented: “NEEVA would like to thank the Co-op for donating over £200 from their store community fund to our group. This has enabled the purchase of two lovely Christmas hampers for our raffle, whilst the rest will go towards the mulled wine and mince pies for the big switch on.”
He added: “It will be a great evening for our village once again.”
The annual village Christmas lights event is once again promising to be a real treat, hosted by Dave Sweetmore, from Revolution Radio, with carol singing and a festive market, plus late-night shopping and food from selected retailers.
Any funds raised at the event will go directly to support this and other local projects to improve the local community.
The lights will be switched on, declaring the start of the festive season, by none other than Santa Claus and a mystery guest.
Fab Dance Centre will perform Christmas classics, and a brass band will play traditional seasonal tunes outside the Brown Cow Inn.
Raffle tickets are available at selected village retailers including Millionhairs, Brown Cow Inn, Wildbloods Butchers, Carousel Card and Party, the Bowling Club and the Post Office.
Tickets for Santa’s grotto are on sale at TipToes.
The event takes place from 6pm on Thursday 29 November, with the lights being turned on at 7pm.
