It will come as no surprise, but we are sorry to have to announce that there will be no Lights Parade this year. This is due to the cancellation of the Spring Dance and resulting lack of funds as well as the ongoing uncertainty of the Covid-19 situation. We will, of course, light up the village as usual from early December.
The Lights Parade will be back next year funded by the Spring Dance, with ‘Holy Moly and the Crackers’ and support, on 1st May, 2021. Tickets on sale in early Spring!
We will be holding our 2020 AGM on Thursday 24th September at 7pm on Zoom, if you would like to join us please complete the Contact form and we’ll send you a link.
Thanks to those that have kindly supported us this year, including donations from the Blackdown Practice, the Hemyock Table Top Sale and Emily Pring’s plant sales.
This event is POSTPONED due to Coronavirus

‘It was a fantastic night, the creativity of the trains and all the lanterns, the silhouettes in the windows and the amazing projections all made it a very special event.’
‘Thanks so much to all of you’
‘What a magical night – definitely for those of us taking part and I am sure for those watching. To see that shining train float up the street made me an open-mouthed small child.’
‘Thank you for sharing your ideas, dreams and madness with all of us!’
‘So glad we did it! It was a really great idea! The fact that others appreciated it too was an extra bonus.’
‘Very glad to be a part of it, for the first time, everyone did a really great job…..’
‘Hope we can samba again next year!!!!!’
‘What a lovely occasion. We would like to thank you for wonderful organisation, and the great artistic and technical brains that made the preparation so pleasurable and the event go without a hitch.’
‘We feel really happy and privileged to live in a village where there is such a sense of community and working together for the good of all.’
