Getting together for the community
Tis’ the season to be jolly, Fa la la la la, la la la la…. Ok, so it’s a little bit early to be thinking about Christmas songs.. its still a good 4 months away before radio playlist are inundated with the familiar yearly seasonal hits, Christmas trees are in every window and every optimist is predicting snow on the big day. However, it’s never to early to get involved with a local community group who are thinking about Christmas for the local town. Due to the many council budget cuts around the country, Wolverhampton City Council’s priority has to lie with providing essential services, which means budgets for things like Christmas lights has been massively reduced.
Hands On Wednesfield
Hands on Wednesfield is community group looking to make their local area a better place to live, work and play. This year, with the help of residents, businesses, schools and so forth, they are looking to transform the town centre’s high street Christmas light attempt to a new level.
Hands on Wednesfield are looking to raise £4000 to:
- Double the amount of lights along the high street
- Add more lights to the trees around St Thomas’ Church
- Work towards their long-term goal of bringing back a live tree to the heart of the village.
What’s more, Hands on Wednesfield is offering a wide variety of sponsorship packages, from mentions in the Christmas brochures to being featured in the Wednesfield Magazine.
Varlowe is always looking for ways to help our local community, from getting involved with the local speedway cyclists club, to sponsoring the mighty Wednesfield FC football team! For us, this is just another opportunity to give something back to our humble town.
