Help the Jim Laker Fund light up Wiveliscombe

New Christmas Lights needed for 2017

28/04/2017

As you may know, Taunton Deane Borough Council has withdrawn their funding for the Christmas lights in Wiveliscombe.  If Wiveliscombe would like to see a display this year we will have to raise the funds from the community to achieve this.  The Jim Laker Fund constitution states an aim of 'promoting the town of Wiveliscombe and its locality through cultural, social, artistic, tourist and educational activities' so after some discussion we have set up a sub group to help 'Light up Wiveliscombe'.


All monies raised from local businesses, the public and fund raising events will be spent on the supply and installation of the new lights.


Our goal is to build on the Christmas Lights each year to make Wibeliscombe a destination town for the festive period.  This in turn will support the local businesses and tourism, helping keep Wiveliscombe thriving.  We would loke to work with other local groups and organisations to make the switch-on spectacular.


If you would like to donate towards this or want any further information please visit the Jim Laker Fund website www.jimlakerfund.co.uk or email Info@jimlakerfund.com.uk using a subject line of 'Christmas Lights'.  The more money raised the larger the display for 2017.
