Cranleigh Christmas Lights – Lampposts and Volunteers

The Cranleigh Chamber of Commerce Christmas Lights sub-committee met again yesterday evening and we are pleased to report good progress ahead of this important local event on Saturday 18th November.

You can keep up to date with this event on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/events/1641089599248211/

We have a huge fundraising target this year in order to replace all of the lights in the 17 Maple Trees along the Common, as well as covering our usual annual costs for installing and testing the lights, and hosting the switch-on event.

The generosity of Chamber members and other local businesses has been exceptional as always this year; we are pleased to confirm the new lighting units have been ordered and the event will go ahead.

However, we still have a number of sponsorship opportunities for local businesses.

If you would like to sponsor the light decorations on one of the lampposts for £75, please email hello@cranleighbiz.co.uk and we will secure your spot. More than half of these have already been snapped up!

In return for your sponsorship, you will get a notice on the lamppost and a thank you on our social media channels.

We are also looking for some extra pairs of hands for the event itself. We need volunteers to act as marshals in Fountain Square and Stocklund Square between 4.30pm and 7.30pm on Saturday 18th November. If you can spare a few hours to help, please email hello@cranleighbiz.co.uk to let us know.

Finally, if you have a High Street business and have any plans for the event, please make sure you drop us a line to let us know so we can help spread the word!
