Health and wellbeing

Funding level: £5,001 to £10,000

Description

Each year we put up the lights in the High Street and organise a community event, there are singers, dancers, stilt walkers, human angels, kids crafts, football competitions, a talent show and of course a large Christmas themed market for the adults.
Each year we aim to get bigger and better, hoping to involve more and more people therefore bringing the people together and getting the community feeling good again.
This year our event is on November 25th, each year it is the last Sunday of November.
As from next year 2019 we are hoping to hold other events ie a picnic/party in the park, with music, dancing and other entertainments. An Easter Egg hunt for the children, Haloween party and of course the Christmas event.
Hopefully all these together will bring more and more people together, therefore encouraging a feeling of community to our town.

Wickford at Christmas

We are proud as it started as a vision and have now found a dedicated team of volunteers. We are now seeing it blossom and with help financially it will grow year upon year, hopefully to one day make our High Street the go to place for people to visit at Christmas. This is our legacy to the town.
