You may have heard that Angus District Council doesn’t have the budget to pay for Christmas lights in its burghs this year — including Monifieth.
That means that unless the cash is raised elsewhere, there will be no street decorations, no tree lights and no switch-on ceremony in the High Street.
However, the town’s Rotary Club and Community Council are working together to put on the display in the High Street and make it festive for Christmas. We feel that it is an important tradition for the town, and every effort should be made to keep it going.
But in order to do this, we need your help. The cost of installing the lights, decorating the tree and organising the switch-on will cost in excess of £3,000, and, unfortunately, we need to turn to crowdfunding to raise the necessary money.
Can you make a donation? A pledge will go towards the cost of installing the lights along the High Street, decorating the tree, and organising the switch-on ceremony (which, as always, will be free).
The switch-on ceremony will be held on Wednesday, November 29.
And, remember, it won’t just be the town’s children who’ll be delighted to see the lights going up – Santa’s looking forward to popping in too!
