Roll of Honour - 2018-19

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 Stiles Coffee Shop for selling the tickets.

We are grateful to Windermere and Ambleside Lions Club for organizing the fireworks display and to The Regent Hotel and Tesco Stores 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.

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 Kentdale Medical Services 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 EssGee for use of the Market Cross area and the donation on behalf of the eleven businesses based there.

Special thanks to Peter Lang of Peter Does Design for all his creative work on this year’s flyer.

The committee would also like to thank the businesses and individuals who generously donated prizes for our fundraising bingo events.

The Christmas Lights Committee would like to publicly thank the people/organisations whose generous contributions and time donated helped to make this year's Switch on the BEST EVER!

Details will be added as donations are received.

The list below is correct as at June 9th 2019

In addition, we would like to thank the people who made anonymous contributions via theappeal within the Parish Magazine recently.
