Some lack the spirit of Christ­mas when it comes to town lights

Bray People - - News -

THE BRAY and District Cham­ber of Com­merce have de­clared their dis­ap­point­ment that some traders in the town have not con­trib­uted to this year’s Christ­mas Lights.

It was de­cided at last week’s ex­ec­u­tive meet­ing that those who do con­trib­ute fi­nan­cially will be pro­vided with a spe­cial sticker to en­able shop­pers in the town to see for them­selves those busi­nesses that have helped pay for the Christ­mas Lights.

‘We are very dis­ap­pointed that some of the traders in Bray still refuse to sup­port this ini­tia­tive by not con­tribut­ing to­wards the cost of pro­vid­ing the Christ­mas Dis­play. This is an ab­so­lute shame since there is great ben­e­fit to every­one, traders and shop­pers alike,’ com­mented Mr. Eu­gene Fin­negan pres­i­dent of the Bray Cham­ber.

‘Those that we have pro­vided with stick­ers we would ask shop­pers to es­pe­cially sup- port th­ese traders, ’ he said.

The of­fi­cial switch on of the Christ­mas Snowflake Lights is due to take place on Satur­day Novem­ber 22 with the Spe­cial Guest of Hon­our to be re­vealed at a later date.

‘We in the Cham­ber are de­lighted that the mag­i­cal Snowflake Lights Dis­play will be pro­vided again this Christ­mas’, said Mr. Fin­negan, ‘

‘Last year was the first time we used the new style of Christ­mas lights and it proved to be a huge suc­cess for every­one in the town.’
