The Big Switch On

A big night in the Audlem calendar is coming up on Thursday. This is the programme as sent to us by Ralph Warburton of ADAS:

November 29th — The Big Switch On Night

St James' School children will arrive in the Square to enjoy the celebrations with FASA holding a tombola under the Buttermarket. Audlem Hammers young footballers will be singing carols in the coachway of Williams' shop

The Sponsors of the Big Tree, Louisa & Martin Balaam and their children, will throw the switch to light up the big tree and then Santa – organised by ADAS  - will arrive on the canal wharf, helped in glorious fashion by the Audlem Lass and her  team.

You can light a candle to float — in aid of the Royal Lifeboat Institution — on the canal ahead of Santa as he sails into view. 

All the traders of the village will be open on the night with lots of attractions and games. A really happy family night in the best Christmas Village of all Cheshire.

And there's live music in the Lord Combermere too.

This event actually took place last weekend (on the dates given in the article) — for various reasons the article did not get onto our publishing schedule until yesterday, several days after the event. So apologies to anyone confused by this, but meanwhile the Dorothy Clive...
