Why don’t you join in to make Christmas in Cleveleys a special festive community time this year!
Decorating Cleveleys at Christmas is notoriously difficult for one reason and another, hence why it’s not been especially festive in past years. However, this year the local community is working together to change that! We’ve had our thinking caps on, joined forces and we’re on a mission to make Cleveleys Christmassy.
Will you join in? The more people who do the better it will be!
What’s the Plan for Christmas in Cleveleys?
Christmas Cheer in Cleveleys, the Association of Traders and the Coastal Community Team are all working together, and this year we’re going green!
Not necessarily green as in the colour, but green as in more environmentally friendly. For the first time we’re making our own decorations by re-using and re-purposing the things that we find, Wombles style… but in an organised and coordinated way.
You are invited to:
- Make a decoration following the instructions to be provided (at home, at school, your community group, whatever).
- Then bring it along to the community decorating day (details tbc).
How to join in:
Watch out for updates on Facebook and posters around town. Or email jane@theRabbitPatch.co.uk to register your interest in helping.
Christmas Cheer in Cleveleys
The Christmas Cheer in Cleveleys team is a small, new group of very enthusiastic volunteers, led by local women Scarlett Clegg and Marie Farrar. They’re working hard to bring sparkle to town with Cleveleys Christmas Lights and will once again be making the town shine.
- Please join the Christmas Cheer in Cleveleys Facebook Group if you’d like to help.
- There’s also a Christmas Cheer in Cleveleys Facebook Page for you to Like where you can find announcements
They’ve put together a programme of fundraising events for you to take part in:
- Mon 21 Oct 2019 – Quiz Night at The Venue, starts 8.30pm
- Sun 10 Nov 2019 – Christmas Fair at The Park Club
- Sun 8 Dec 2019 – Christmas Fair at Tee Time Golf (formerly Norcross Social Club)
The more that Christmas Cheer raise the more can be spent on decorating Cleveleys for the festive season. Please try to support us if you can. We urgently need prizes for our raffles and tombolas and helpers on the day for the Christmas Fairs.
Stalls available to rent for a nominal fee of only £10 for local businesses and crafters etc. Please contact Scarlett Clegg or Marie Farrar.
Meet Santa in Cleveleys
North Fylde Rotary Club will once again be accompanying Santa on his sleigh, to spread joy, cheer and chocolates, during the middle two weekends of December.
The Coastal Community Team is hoping to be able to install street trees in Cleveleys town centre. They will add many things to the area, one of which is a framework for fairy lights.
It would appear that (like most things) this project will be slow in coming to fruition. So we’re doing other things meanwhile!
