Longridge Does Christmas
We are thrilled to announce that preparations have started for a "Longridge Does Christmas". Last year's event was a huge success with amazing feedback from businesses, members of the community and visitors.
This year the event is scheduled to take place on:
Thursday 28th November 2019 between 6pm - 9pm
Longridge Town Council will be coordinating the event this year with the support of a community working group.
We are fortunate in Longridge to have such an inviting and thriving shopping experience full of passionate independent retailers. The event will be an amazing opportunity to showcase your fabulous local business to potential new customers and to the whole community.
A huge advertising campaign will be launched in early November that will target Longridge and the outlying communities. Flyers and countdown posters will be available for display in shop windows for those wishing to participate. The group are available to give any support, to listen to any suggestions or answer questions.
The success of this event, like last year, depends on sufficient volunteers coming forward to help. A meeting has been arranged for Monday 21st October at 6.30pm at the Station Buildings, Berry Lane, Longridge. If you are unable to attend but still wish to help in anyway please contact the Town Clerk by email (firstname.lastname@example.org) or phone 01772 782461.
