It was agreed that the group would ask Daniel to bring the choir for 4pm and sing 3 carols or Christmas songs before the lights were switched on and the Salvation Army band played some more carols.
The event will require some form of PA system.

Action   Ralph to contact the Co-op requesting their support and involvement.
Now that the date has been set the group agreed to try and get as much information out to the village as possible. Richard suggested asking Mick Melvin if he can help with publicity.
