Getting in the Christmas spirit
As autumn and the dark evenings draw in, we are starting off our campaign to bring light to the village for Christmas. Each year local families and businesses sponsor the 18 festive lights that brighten Henderson Street over Christmas time. Sponsorship helps us to pay to maintain, repair, put up and store throughout the year. Volunteers on the Community Council organise this and with the help of Friends of Bridge of Allan put up our sponsorship plaques thanking our generous sponsors.
Our Christmas Lights Appeal
The lights are in fiar condition now after the refurbishment in 2021. However over time and due to outdoor exposure during their use over the years, the lights will eventually need further repairs and inevitable replacement. To plan in advance for this expense, we will be running fundraising campaigns over the next few years so that we have the funds required. We are committed to ensure our village continues to sparkle during the festive period in the years to come.
Replacement of the lights will cost around £20,000 and we are reaching out to you, our community, our local groups, our merchants, our students and our visitors to help us raise these funds.
