Children can light up town this Christmas
PRIMARY school children in Knutsford stand the chance to have their own creation up in lights by entering a festive competition.
Knutsford Town Council is calling all children aged between four and 11 to get festive and design a new Christmas Light motif for the town centre.
The best design, as judged by the town council events committee, will be produced as a new motif for the 2013 celebrations.
The competition – agreed by the events committee in July – is open to creativity, and there are no stipulations on the shape of the design.
Town centre manager Adam Keppel-Garner decided to go ahead with the idea after walking around Wilmslow and spotting that its town council had developed the same idea.
“We are open to any ideas the children have for what would make a nice new festive motif in the town centre,” said Mr Keppel-Garner.
“Over the past couple of years the town council has looked to improve the offering of the Christmas lights in the town. They’ve been getting new lights each year and trying to make the festive period special.
“We’re trying to get the community more involved in the lights we have each year.
“The motif could be a traditional Christmas image of Santa, or something with a Knutsfordian twist.”
Entries are open from September 1 to 30 and should be submitted to Knutsford Town Council, Council Offices, Toft Road, Knutsford, or via e-mail to adam.kg@knutsfordtowncouncil.
The new light will be unveiled at the Christmas lights switch-on, which forms part of the Knutsford Christmas Weekend.
The cost of producing the motif will be around £500 to £800 depending on the design.
