Don't let the lights go out - St Peter Port Christmas Lights

Don't let the lights go out

Our Cause

Guernsey residents and visitors past and present have wonderful memories of Town at Christmastime but the future is looking dark if we do not raise the necessary funds to support maintenance and improvement of the Christmas lights. Our aim is to raise those funds!

But how much do we need? Well, for basic management and upkeep of the lights a minimum of £33,000 per annum is required. However, to extend and enhance the festive lighting for present and future generations, around £45,000 per annum is necessary. This money will cover the magical festive light displays across Church Square, Market Square, Smith Street, Fountain Street, the Arcade, Mill Street, the High Street and The Pollet.

Media Statement

Town will once again be adorned with Christmas Lights thanks to the generosity of the people of Guernsey and funding received from The States of Guernsey.

Jax Robin, Chair of the St Peter Port Christmas Lights says that after in depth communication with Deputy St Pier, funding has been received to cover the cost of purchasing the replacement lights and infrastructure required for 2019 in the sum of £13,504.50.  With these expenses paid this brings the total now banked to just over the £33,000.00 required for testing, erecting, insuring, storage and de-rigging of the 2019 display. As for previous years, all donations received from now onwards will go towards future expenses.

Jax and the team are both heartened and delighted that Deputy St Pier and the Committee for P & R have recognised the importance of keeping Christmas lights in St Peter Port to support the Town’s economy and the welfare and happiness of the community of Guernsey during the festive period. On behalf of the Charity she thanks all who have made contributions to the ‘Don’t let the lights go out’ campaign over the past 3 years and although it may be a little early, she wishes everyone a ‘Happy, Merry & Bright Christmas 2019’.

Santa’s Switch On will be Saturday 30 th November 2019 – more details to follow later.
