Alderley Edge Parish Council recently carried out a survey to find out which new Christmas lights local residents and businesses would prefer in the village.
They presented three different options for column decorations and were delighted that 148 residents completed the survey and gave them their views.
To confirm the results which were as follows:
Option 1 (Star Blizzard) received just 10% of the first preference votes (3rd place)
Option 2 (Star Turn) received 33% of the first preference votes (2nd place)
Option 3 (Star Delight) received 57% of the first preference votes (1st place)
Councillor Craig Browne said "Having received over half of the first preference votes, Option 3 (Star Delight) was therefore the clear winner and an order has now been placed for this decoration to be installed on the fourteen lamp columns on London Road, from Piccolino's to Coggles in time for this year's Christmas Lights Switch-On event which will take place on Thursday 21st November.
"The Parish Council have carried out a tender exercise to obtain the best price for the column decorations, which we will have for the next three years (although they will be taken down each January and stored securely until the following November). In order to allow us more time to fundraise, we have taken the decision to delay the replacement of the tree lights until next year."
