Guernsey residents and visitors past and present have wonderful memories of Town at Christmastime but the future is looking dark if we do not raise the necessary funds to support maintenance and improvement of the Christmas lights. Our aim is to raise those funds!
But how much do we need? Well, for basic management and upkeep of the lights a minimum of £35,000 per annum is required. However, to extend and enhance the festive lighting for present and future generations, around £45,000 per annum is necessary. This money will cover the magical festive light displays across Church Square, Market Square, Smith Street, Fountain Street, the Arcade, Mill Street, the High Street and The Pollet.
To support us and help ensure the future of Town’s Christmas lights, please donate using one of the methods below:
29th July 2017 - 2pm to 4.30pm
11 November 2017
Teams of up to 6, £10 per person
16 November 2017 - 7pm to 10pm
Tickets £5 to include tea/coffee and mince pie

Thanks to the amazing generosity of you, the people of Guernsey, we will have lights this Christmas.
We have just passed the £35,000 so we can test, maintain and erect in October and take down again however we still need £2,900 to reach the £7K target for the replacement Arcade lights - please keep donating.
Anything we collect over this will go towards 2018 - it doesn't stop now.
