The Oldfield community is set to come together next month to celebrate the annual switch-on of the crowdfunded Moorland Road Christmas Lights.
The annual event, taking place on Saturday 24th November, will see Moorland Road closed to traffic from 10am, with entertainment starting from 1pm.
This year, Santa will arrive at 1pm, an hour earlier than usual because he was in so much demand last year.
Santa will have gifts for children under 8, with donations being welcomed.
The big Christmas light switch on will take place at 4.30pm, with the road reopening to traffic by 6pm.
Councillor for Oldfield Ward, Will Sandry, said: “The Moorland Road Christmas lights are not sponsored by the Council. They are provided by the local community for the community.
“We are really fortunate to have Jordan Liddle who takes unpaid time out from running his business to organise the Christmas Lights.”
Jordan Liddle, Technical Director of BW-Tech Fire & Security, added: “It’s a real privilege to once again be delivering this much-loved event in Oldfield Park.
“The preparations for the lights start in June and ramp up as the big day approaches. I’m extremely grateful to the members of the public and those businesses who also help with the sponsorship or volunteer their time to make the event a success.”
The Bath community are being invited to get involved in crowdfunding for the event, which has a target of £2000. You can find out more, and sponsor a tree for £50, here.
