The directors and committee members of Ambleside Community Christmas Lights wish to thank those businesses who have responded to the recent letter which invited businesses to donate or pledge a donation to assist the Ambleside Christmas Lights Switch-on event to take place this year. They also appreciate the offers of practical help.

As a result of those pledges and immediate donations the directors have decided that the 2019 switch-on event (on Saturday November 16th) should go ahead.

However, the event will only be possible if the reserves are used to fund the event and this will inevitably mean that the event can ONLY be assured for 2019. If the event is to continue into future years it is vital that businesses and local residents support the event by making donations to ensure the financial needs of this event which benefits the whole community.

The committee will welcome any additional pledges of support for 2019 and that can be done by emailing with the details (name of individual/business, amount pledged to be paid by Oct 31st, and a contact email address).

Fiona Sparrow, Richard Attenborough and Graham Harrison (Directors of Ambleside Community Christmas Lights Ltd.)
