Christmas in Parbold
For 2014, our main project was Christmas.
To make Parbold just a little more festive, we paid for Christmas Lights to be installed throughout the village, organised the Battle of the Bulbs competition, produced the Christmas Brochure and supplied the village Christmas Tree.
Provided by us, erected by Douglas Valley Lions, fence supplied by the Railway Pub, lights by courtesy of the Women’s Institute and our Parish Council and the fence decorated by Parbold Douglas Academy and Our Lady and All Saints School. This was truly a ‘Village’ tree.
In 2015, we added a Nativity scene and invited the primary school children to meet and, together with the vicar of Christ Church, Parbold, celebrate the reason for Christmas.
2016 will see further additions to make the tree a central attraction in the village.
