We want to light up Birchgrove high street and shopping district with Christmas lights and displays. This will help us attract shoppers and rejuvinate the area.

Cardiff Idea stage

This project is preparing for fundraising. Click Like to show your support, or Follow for updates on this project's journey.

Cardiff Council is working in partnership with the BBG to deliver a regeneration project to bring about environmental improvements to the shopping area. The aim of the plan is to bring long term redevelopment to Birchgrove shopping area but putting up Christmas lights is a great way of attracting shoppers in the short term

What we'll deliver:

  • Buy new Christmas lights
  • Display the lights with help from local traders and volunteers

Why it's a great idea:

The high street used to be a great place for local residents to come and socialise as well as do their shopping. Many people came by the shops most days and the friendly atmosphere between shoppers and traders was one of the main reasons.

Putting up new and attractive Christmas lights will bring people to the high street and help reignite that community spirit.

Steps to get it done:

  • Buy new lights and decorations
  • Secure official permissions from Cardiff council
  • Work with traders to put them up
  • Publicise the event and make sure everyone feels welcome
