CHATTERIS CHRISTMAS LIGHTS
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 – no technical skills are required, but always welcome. FOR 2020 and 2021 ADDITIONAL PRECAUTIONS WERE TAKEN TO TRY TO ENSURE THE SAFETY OF VOLUNTEERS. Masks were required to be worn in the Store and when sharing space in the Milk Float or Cherrypicker (volunteers brought their own}. Individual Hi-Viz bibs and work gloves are allocated. We will be reviewing all necessary precautions this year in line with Government Guidelines.
Erection in 2022 will start on Saturday 15th October from 8.00am at the store at the front of the Empress Swimming Pool in Park Street.
The team are out from 8.00 working on Saturdays and Sundays (8.30) throughout October and November (except Remembrance Sunday) until erection is completed on the weekend before Switch-on.
WHAT GOES UP
MUST COME DOWN
Dismantling starts on the first weekend following twelfth night, the time taken depends on the numbers of volunteers available and the weather conditions. For several years it has been achieved in a single weekend and only one extra day on the following weekend!
If you wish to help in 2022 we will commence on Saturday 8th 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 bibs, working gloves and hard hats are supplied as required.
