Christmas Wishes


Kirkbymoorside Town Council would like to extend its whole hearted thanks to everyone involved with the town Christmas decorations.

Every year there is a collective effort by teams of volunteers to bring Christmas to Kirkbymoorside. The team responsible for arranging the small Christmas trees that are mounted on brackets and adorn the outside of the properties is led by Pam Towler. About 35 years ago Pam set up the scheme initially for the shops and businesses in the town centre. The brackets were originally made at the forge by Mike Hammond and Richard Harrison, latterly by Gerry McMahon and Bob Ibbotson and now they are available from Richard Milestone. Gradually the numbers increased as home owners joined the scheme and now there are approximately 150 trees mounted on brackets throughout the town.

Special thanks go to Pam Towler and Julie Watson who liaise with the residents and businesses and make all the necessary arrangements each year; Rita Gibson and Stephen Helm for storing the trees and ensuring they get allocated; Mark Robinson and Darren Collier who put up the trees and of course all the residents and business owners who are part of the Christmas tree scheme.

Thanks very much to James Holt who very generously donates the two large Christmas trees for the Market Place and the churchyard every year and to Phil Todd and his colleagues who install the trees. The Christmas motifs and lights on the Christmas trees are put up by another team of volunteers and special thanks go to Mark Robinson, Darren Collier, Paul Featherston, Tony Barnet, Shane Johnson, Andy Prout, Doug Taylor, Phil Ward, Sid Brackley, Paul Todd and Phil Gospel. Thanks also to Chris Clarke and Brian Collins for ensuring all the lights are safe and completing the electrical element of the exercise.

There will not be any Christmas lights on the A170 roundabout this year as it is under construction. However, fairy lights will adorn the two silver birch trees on Piercy End and one on High Market Place and thanks go to Mick and Ann Potter, the Saxon Family and Donald Horsfield who have permitted these lights to be plugged in to their premises.

Wishing you all a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
