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 £33,000 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.

On behalf of our charity team, I thank Guernsey Post for their fourth year of sponsoring the envelope door2door, all who have donated to this year’s lights, without you both we just wouldn’t have such a wonderful display in our town. Thank you also goes to Economic Development, for making up the shortfall in support of the ‘Revive and Thrive’ Strategy. We are so humbled by the support we receive and the delightful comments we get.
I thank and applaud Mario and his team from our Contractors: Event Group who work very long, unsociable hours for 7 weeks getting the lights tested and erected each year and then trouble shooting whilst the lights are on. Thanks also to Guernsey Electricity for their continued sponsorship of the power used.
Thanks go to all the food, tableware, winners’ prizes and raffle prize donors for our Annual Christmas Themed Quiz as well as to all the quizzers who attend the event each year. We also thank TPA for our website.
Last but not least, we thank Santa and his elves, the organisers, sponsors, Petit Train, parade members and comperes of the 2020 Switch-On as well as Dr Nicola Brink for her help and attendance, without her Guernsey wouldn’t have been able to have such an incredible event.
You did it Guernsey, you fulfilled our 2020 envelope motto ‘Let’s make Christmas the BRIGHT spot of the year’ – we have wonderful Christmas lights in St Peter Port. THANK YOU.
I wish you all a very Happy, Merry & BRIGHT Christmas and a Healthy New Year.
