Over recent months, a Parish Council working group led by Cllr Liz Marshall, Cllr Rachael Grantham and Cllr Craig Browne has been looking at ways of improving the Christmas lights in our village.
Councillor Craig Browne explained "A catalyst in this decision has been the fact that the existing tree lights on London Road have reached the end of their natural life and are not expected to function beyond this year.
"Last year the Parish Council invested in new lights for the three Christmas Trees (one at the junction of Ryleys Lane, one at the junction of Macclesfield Road and one at Wood Gardens); ideally we would have liked to replace the tree lights on London Road this year, but the cost of doing so has proven prohibitive, meaning that we need more time to fundraise for this project."
This year they have been working with a range of suppliers to obtain designs and costings for decorative lights on the lamp columns along London Road - from the junction with Ryleys Lane to the junction with Macclesfield Road.
Local businesses have helped to shortlist the various options, which are now being put to local residents for your feedback.
Local residents are now being invited to indicate your order of preference from the shortlist of three designs, by following the link https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/CDTGQF3.
The supply costs are the same regardless of which option is chosen and are in the region of £5,000 to cover the 14 lamp columns concerned.
The survey will remain open until Monday 26th August and the Parish Council hope to publish the results on Tuesday 27th August.
