ON BEHALF of Beaminster Town Council I would, through the pages of your newspaper, like to express our sincere gratitude to the numerous businesses and individuals who gave so generously towards the 2017 Christmas Lights Festival on Friday, December 1.

We sincerely hope that all those who came along that evening enjoyed the parade and approve of the enhanced Christmas lighting, this would not have been possible without the donations, sponsorship and manpower including pupils of Beaminster School. 

Unfortunately, due to printing deadlines, one business was omitted from the programme so we would like to thank P H Hardwill & Son for very kindly donating the Christmas tree brackets erected in Hogshill Street.

Town Clerk
