It’s that wonderful time of the year again. The Wombourne Christmas Light switch on is taking place on Friday, 1st December.

Here’s what’s going on that night for you to look forward to.

Switching on the lights

The Parish Council, we have organised the following:

  • Combined Schools Choir will be singing outside the front of the Civic Centre from 5.30pm
  • Mince pies will be handed out to the children who attend
  • Santa will be visiting on his sleigh (he is likely to do one lap of the village and then park up outside the Civic Centre)
  • There will be a countdown by the Parish Council Chairman at 6pm to the light switch on
  • Following the switch on there will be a short firework display
