Festive fun at Christmas Lights Switch-on


Great fun had was by all at the Westminster Park Christmas Lights Switch-on which took place on Thursday 5th December.

The Lord Mayor of Chester, Councillor Mark Williams, lead the countdown assisted by two members of the Belgrave Primary School choir.  Once the lights had been switched on the choir entertained the crowd of local residents with a selection of Christmas songs.

Refreshments were provided by the Westminster Park shops – mince pies from the Co-op, hot dogs from Bebbington’s butchers, pizza by Al Forno and prawns from Bebbington & Williams fishmongers.  The Westminster Park Residents’ Association supplied juice and mulled wine.

We are most grateful to our local councillors Neil Sullivan and Razia Daniels for providing funding from their Members’ Budgets to assist with the purchase of new lights for the trees opposite the shops and a beautiful Christmas tree, supplied by Francis Thomas, greengrocers.
