Wrangle over Christmas Lights Switch-on

By timesecholife on in All News, Latest News

A PLAN to hand control of Cheadle's Christmas Lights Switch-on to the town's council has been rejected.

Team Cheadle proposed to hand responsibility for the annual event to Cheadle Town Council after dwindling volunteers and recent resignations left just four people willing to run the occasion.

But the town council rebuffed the plea, agreeing to continue funding the event, but refusing to be responsible for organising it.

Following the Team Cheadle AGM, at which a number of members resigned, the group agreed to ask the town council to take over the running of the Christmas event.

The issue was discussed at a meeting of the town council’s finance and resources committee on Monday.
