Christmas Comes To Fishponds!
Fishponds Planning is proud to be one of the groups contributing funds to bring festive lights to Fishponds this Christmas.
Organised by Fishponds Business Forum, the lighting scheme will see more than 40 businesses on Fishponds Road put on the area’s first Christmas lights display for twelve years.
The decorative display will stretch from Elmgrove Road to Hinton Road and Fishponds Business Forum are also planning to fund a large illuminated Christmas tree in Fishponds Park. In a supportive gesture, Bristol City Council have waived the cost of a licence application for the lights.
Fishponds Planning has been able to donate £1000.00 to the cause thanks to a small funding grant from the First Steps initiative. Leigh Cooper, current chair of Fishponds Business Forum said “We are very grateful for all the support we have received”
The switch-on event for the Fishponds lights is planned for November 28 at a time to be confirmed; watch this space!
