Helpers sought to help Uppermill shine with festive cheer

AN enthusiastic village committee is reaching out for helpers to ensure a memorable Christmas lights display will continue to shine.

Last year, Saddleworth Lights Committee and Saddleworth Round Table teamed up to make sure Uppermill’s Christmas tree had a bright star in memory of local legend Paul Lowcock.

Saddleworth Round Table also donated to help provide the village fairy lights that lined the High Street.

Now, support and help are needed to make sure the same festive shine brightens the village this Christmas.

Round Table chairman Andrew Rothwell said: “As the years moved on volunteers for the Saddleworth Lights committee has dwindled and now they are appealing for your help.

“If you live or work in Uppermill and want to help shape the future light displays in the village then you are most welcome to attend an open meeting upstairs in Abaco on Monday, March 16 from 7.30pm.

“The committee has some funds available and welcomes other means to generate funds to help improve our Christmas lights year on year.

“The actual time commitment for helping with the lights is low but the impact of your support will be massive.”
