Christmas Lights Switched On

Sat 1st December 2018

Christmas Tree lights up the Market Place in Wirksworth

Large numbers of people gathered in the Market Place in Wirksworth on Saturday 1st December for the switching-on of the Christmas Tree lights, with everyone getting into the festive spirit singing Christmas Carols and children having the chance to meet Santa.

Our thanks go to Thompson Tree Services for providing and erecting the tree, Phil Richards for leading the carol singing and the BM&W Band for playing the music, Canon David Truby for the blessing of the tree, the Mayor of Wirksworth, Councillor Chris Whittle, for switching on the lights, and the Wirksworth Town Council for their help and support.
