Highbridge town centre to get new £7,500 Christmas lights
town centre is set to get a brand new £7,500 display of
Christmas lights this festive season.
funding has been awarded to the town by Burnham and Highbridge
Town Council towards the replacement of its Christmas lights.
Chamber of Trade Chairman Mike Murphy, pictured, told Burnham-On-Sea.com:
"We've been using our current blue Christmas lights for over
five years now. Ther were acquired from the town council after
being used along Burnham seafront, so we are definitely due to
get some new ones."
are therefore spending around £7,500 to buy 30 new colourful
lights which will be on show this Christmas to create a livelier,
warmer street scene. They have been ordered and are due to be
installed and switched on in early December."
Town Council has given us £2,500 a year for the past few
years which we have been storing to buy the new lights - so we
are grateful to the council for its support."

in Market Street, has been supplied by Burnham and Highbridge
