St Ives Cornwall - Christmas Lights

St Ives Cornwall - Christmas Lights

The St Ives Christmas Lights are going up around town.

I've spent the last three nights working with a team organised by St Ives Chamber of Commerce and St Ives Town Council - to get Christmas trees and lights installed.

Trees are now up and lit along Fore Street, Market Place and High Street. We ran out of trees part way along Tregenna Place - but more are on their way on Monday. We will then put more up along Tregenna Place and Tregenna Hill.

Lots of hard work was put in by a team of volunteers from the Chamber, various local businesses and St Ives Bay Rotary Club.

Expert help in ladder work and electrics provided by Second To None Roofing and Coast Electrical Services. Transport provided by Mike of The Garrack Hotel.

Paid for by  donations from a huge number of local businesses - listed on:
St Ives Christmas Lights - Donors

Elsewhere lots of lights are going up along St Ives Harbour and various local shops / pubs / restaurants thanks to St Ives fishermen Stuart and Tony. If you want more lights for your business give them a call - 07979 573 365.

The Big Switch On for the main town Christmas Tree will be on Friday 2nd December - St Ives Guildhall at 6.00 pm. Christmas carols and music from various local choirs.
