CHATTERIS CHRISTMAS LIGHTS
The Trees arrive at the Church.

There is always a need for more Volunteers to assist with the erection, maintenance and taking down of the lights. They are welcome however much or little time they can spare. Erection in 2017 will start on Saturday 21st October from 8.00 am at the store at the rear of the Conservative Club in King Edward Road. The team are out working on Saturdays and Sundays (starting at 8.30) throughout October and November (except Remembrance Sunday) until erection is completed on the weekend before Switch-on.
Dismantling starts on the first weekend following twelfth night, the time taken depends on the numbers of volunteers available and the weather conditions. In 2012, 2013 and 2015 it was achieved in a single weekend and only one extra half day for 2014!! If you wish to help in 2017 we will commence on Saturday 7th January at 8.00 am.
You can do your bit by joining us. If 8.00 am is too early you can join the team
at any stage by finding them around the town. Working clothes are essential but hi-viz jackets, working gloves and hard hats are supplied as required.
