New - Dursley Christmas Lights

Dursley Town Council would like to thank everyone involved in Friday’s Christmas Lights switch on. It was a hugely successful evening only made possible by the hard work of the local businesses and volunteers who have worked tirelessly over the past few months to bring this event together for the benefit of the whole community. We would also like to thank the very generous local residents who donated the fireworks and presents for santa’s grotto and to Tristan Gemmil for turning on the Christmas Lights which helped to make it a magical evening despite the weather.

We would also like to offer our sincere apologies to the winner of our Reindeer Competition, George, who due to an unfortunate communications mix up was unable to help Tristan to turn on the lights.  We have been in touch with George's family to apologise and to offer him an alternative prize.
