Yes, the sun may still be shining but we are already planning this year's festive celebrations for Archway. The switching on of the Christmas lights is scheduled for the afternoon of Friday 2 December, with a fun, family friendly event from 3.30 - 5.15 in Archway Mall. We have already heard from Father Christmas that he will be making his usual special trip to Archway for the event, and we are planning additional activities to keep children entertained before the big switch-on.
We are also starting our search for this year's Christmas sponsors. However big or small, all sponsorships & donations are welcome. So we are delighted that our friends at Essential Living have been the first to step up, matching the generous contribution they made last year, as well as offering us in-kind help from their staff in making the event run smoothly. Everything we bring to the festive celebrations costs (including the largest expense of all, the town centre's Christmas Lights). Without the generosity of our sponsors the event would not be possible. Please dig deep and lets make 2016's event the best yet.
