Balmedie Christmas Lights Group
Yes – they are back!
As you may, or may not know, monies have to be raised each year to put up the lights in the village, take them down, maintain and insure them. As you can appreciate this is quite a considerable financial undertaking and we are always looking at new ways to pay for all of this. We are currently making Xmas Sweets Wreaths which we are selling for £25 and planning other items for sale at a local craft fair later this month but realise that we need to look beyond this. Having spoken to groups from other communities we now propose seeking sponsorship from local businesses to cover part of the costs.
The sponsorship we are asking for is £50, or more should you wish, and we are pleased to say that we have already had a couple of promises to start the ball rolling. Each £50 donation will be acknowledged by a laminated scroll attached to a lamppost to show who has sponsored that particular light this year. We also plan to have a write up in the New Year Banter listing our sponsors.
Additionally, families, local groups or individuals may wish to support the lights by providing sponsorship or donation – please get in touch with us if this would be of interest to you!
