Christmas 2020 Atherstone

The Christmas Lights switch on 2020 were just a little different this year !!

Traditionally the lights are switched on during the ‘Dickens Event’ being the last Saturday in November, but owing to the Covid-19 Pandemic and in line with government guidelines the event could not take place this year.

But thanks to all the hard work by Atherstone Partnership and the talents of Cllr Gary Chamberlain and his son Tom, they put together a short film for the people of Atherstone to watch in the comfort and safety of their own homes.

It would have been the 35th Dickens Event and to celebrate that Santa came along all the way from the North Pole and met up (socially distanced of course) with Cllr Denise Clews the Town Council Mayor.

The switching on event was in memory of a very special lady that recently sadly passed away, Atherstone Town Councillor Lorna Dirveiks.

Lorna was a dedicated Town Councillor and former long serving North Warwickshire Borough Councillor who cared deeply about the local people and community of Atherstone.

We really hope you enjoy watching the film which anyone can watch on YouTube on the Stone Channel.

Next Saturday 5th December Santa will be making a live broadcast at 7pm.
