SOMP plan Christmas lights

Spirit of Milborne Port New cropped smallAt the last committee meeting arrangements for the Christmas Lights Switch On were being completed . Christmas trees have been ordered and the trees are to be put up on Saturday 17th November . We need helpers on the day meeting at 10.00 am at the Town Hall where the WI are kindly opening the meeting room.

A large tree has been ordered to go outside the Town Hall which will be installed on the same day. Apart from being erected all the trees have to be decorated with lights and this takes a lot of time and effort.

The Lights Switch On takes place on Friday 23rd November with the flyers being distributed throughout the village by November 3rd at the latest. Story Time at the library will take place at 5.45pm. Food and drink will be served on the Weighbridge area and the Sherborne Town Band will be playing carols accompanied by the school choir. We can also guarantee snow and the Church Bells will ring during the evening. With the great help of Steve Davis we are selling as many raffle tickets as we can and the Grand Draw takes place at the Weighbridge. This is always an enjoyable festive occasion and we anticipate that the village will give us their full support.

A rough timing of the evening is as follows:

4.45        Church Bells
5.00        Father Christmas
5.45        Stories in Library
6.00        Milborne Port Twirlstars
6.30        Grand Switch On
6.45        Raffle Draw
6.45        Town Band and School Choir

We have applied for more poppies for the High Street as they were much appreciated last year and we thank the team for their efforts in putting them up.

Moving forward the theme for the Scarecrows next year is to be "SPORTS", so look out all your old bats and sticks !
