The Ambleside Chrismas Lights event, which so many enjoy and which now brings large numbers of visitors to the town, could not happen without sponsorship.
We would like to thank for its generous grant:
Lakes Parish Council
We are indebted to Windermere Lake Cruises for sponsoring our Father Christmas cruise and the lights at Waterhead and to F.W.Tyson for selling the tickets.
We are grateful to Windermere and Ambleside Lions Club for organizing the fireworks display and to The Regent Hotel and The White Lion Hotel for space to store our lights.
It is with pleasure that we acknowledge the help of The Rotary Club of Ambleside with the stewarding of the lantern procession and for providing the Christmas trees in Market Place.
A valuable contribution is made by the Ambleside Kirkstone Rotary Club which organizes the street collection on switch-on day.
Thanks to our local police, Langdale/Ambleside Mountain Rescue Team and St John Ambulance for their assistance during the lantern procession.
We are grateful for the use of the Ambleside Rugby Club premises for our lantern workshops.
We are grateful to Legat Owen for use of the Market Cross area.
Special thanks to Peter Lang of Peter Does Design for all his creative work on this year’s flyer.
Thanks, too, to Keith Robinson for his help in revamping this website to make it more mobile/tablet friendly.
The Christmas Lights Committee would like to publicly thank the people/organisations whose generous contributions and time donated will help to make this year's Switch on the BEST EVER! Details will be added as donations are received.
In addition, we would like to thank the many people who made anonymous contributions via the envelopes delivered with the Parish Magazine recently.
