Barwell Parish Council cancel popular Christmas lights switch-on event because of on-going fears over the coronavirus

Barwell Parish Council cancel popular Christmas lights switch-on event because of on-going fears over the coronavirus

The village will still have a Christmas tree and Christmas lights, but there won't be an actual lights switch on event this year.

This decision was taken at a virtual Events Meeting on Monday 10th August as it was decided that they just "can't take the chance" this year with Government warnings that a second wave of the pandemic is a possibility. Many other councils in the region have also cancelled their events. More »

Hundreds of people normally attend the light switch on where local children entertain the crowds, the local Showmen bring along a small fair, Father Christmas flies in to see the children with his donkeys or reindeer and the Christmas lights get switched on.

Mathew Hulbert, Chairman of the events committee said: "We're sure people will be understanding of this decision, given the ongoing pandemic, but we are just not able to physically control the amount of people who may come along and ensure the social distancing that would be needed. It's a sad decision to have to make but the committee feel we just can't take the chance. The Barwell Christmas tree and lights will still be erected and turned on at the end of November." » Less
