Cudworth high street is more than a collection shops, it’s the part of our wonderful community. Over the last few years the community of shops and businesses in the village has grown with more independent traders moving in. The high street is improving all the time and we’re doing our best to encourage new traders to set up in Cudworth, whilst helping those already here. However there has been a few shops lost along the way. Established businesses like Four Seasons, the high street gym and more... It’s tough out there for the small indie shops, cafes and services.

As we move towards winter Cudworth Businesses & Together have been working hard to raise money to buy new replacement lights for the village. Last year Cudworth’s Christmas Lights went up for the very last time in our village. In 2018 there will be no Christmas lights on the village high street unless the community and Barnsley businesses can raise the funds needed to buy new ones.  Cudworth Businesses & Community Together our village’s community  association needs your help. Our aim is to ensure that Cudworth has Christmas lights this year and in future years. 

This requires a lot of  fundraising and community spirit and we would love you to get involved. The big news is that with the help of the community we aim to by new Christmas Lights to ensure Cudworth is lit up this Christmas. The plan is buy as many lights as possible, which cost £500 each. In order to have Christmas Lights in Cudworth this year we need a little bit of support from you. 

Please can you support these plans by helping to buy some new lights?

The names of all those who kindly donate £5 will be recognised by their name being listed on the Visit Cudworth website. Local businesses can donate £10 and will receive a listing on the Visit Cudworth website.

Thank you for your very kind support.  Together we can enhance our community with new Christmas lights for this winter and for many more winters to come.
