Campaign Launched to Shine a Light on Local Businesses and the Town

The Bradford on Avon festive lights will SHINE ON after the Christmas decorations have come down. 

Our beautiful town lights – provided by Burbidge Electrical Contractors – will stay up until the evenings get brighter to shine several hundred spotlights on our local businesses. 

After speaking with some of the local retail and hospitality businesses, the Town Council has decided to leave the lights up as a show of support during a difficult economic period. 

The Mayor of Bradford on Avon, Cllr Katie Vigar said: “Bradford on Avon isn’t just for Christmas!  It’s a great place to spend time and money all year round with our many independent shops, cafes, pubs, restaurants and other businesses offering fantastic variety, quality and value.

“With the lights shining on and with some occasional live music, we hope to help keep our town centre a vibrant place to shop and socialise through the winter months.”
