Clevedon Town Council has taken over the Christmas Lights from a local volunteer group who can no longer pay for the lights. the lights are showing their age and are in need of a major facelift.
The aim of the project is to coordinate the displays in the town centre with those on Hill Road (a Victorian shopping parade near the seafront. to bring together two separate retail areas and to promote Clevedon as an integrated shopping experience.
The switch on will be a day long event coordinated between the two areas. fair rides and stalls in the lower town and suitable events in the Victorian shopping arcade.
What we'll deliver:
Why it's a great idea:
Clevedon Town Centre like many others is a mixture of Victorian buildings and small retail units. it struggles to keep going in the current climate with empty shops. A local volunteer group has raised money each year to install lights in the main shopping square and adjacent street, each year it has got harder for them to raise the money and find volunteers to assist.
They have donated the lights they own to the Town Council who already undertake some of the Christmas lights in the area so that they come under 1 controlling body. most of the lights they had used in past years had been rented and were due to be replaced this year.
Hill Road is a Victorian shopping area about 1/2 a mile from the Town Centre, which the Town Council assists in installing their lights.
The project is to bring all the Christmas lights under I central contact and help to integrate the two different shopping experiences to be mutually supportive
Steps to get it done:
using the money raised to enhance the Christmas Lights Experience we hope to encourage more people to stop at Junction 20 drive straight into town and enjoy the delights of Clevedon
