Full steam ahead with festive plans

Wicklow People (Arklow) - - NEWS -

WITH Hal­lowe’en now over, Arklow Mu­nic­i­pal District is turn­ing its at­ten­tion to Christ­mas and is invit­ing lo­cal busi­nesses to get in­volved in cre­at­ing a won­der­ful festive at­mos­phere in the town.

Mu­nic­i­pal district staff have been work­ing hard through­out the year to build on the new lights pur­chased last year and cre­ate a greater festive dis­play for lo­cals to en­joy.

Plans are un­der way for new fes­toon LED lights for the River­walk and South Quay, a new cross-over fea­ture on Bridge Street, Christ­mas lights along the rail­ings of the bridge, and fea­tures at both Fer­ry­bank and the Wex­ford Road.

In ad­di­tion, the district has pur­chased a quan­tity of 40cm green top­i­ary balls which are fit­ted with bat­tery-op­er­ated, six-hour timer lights and which can be hung on the flower bas­ket brack­ets al­ready erected around the town. These are cur­rently on dis­play at the court­house, the en­trance to the mu­nic­i­pal district of­fices at Castlepark and at the li­brary on Main Street.

These top­i­ary balls are be­ing of­fered to lo­cal busi­nesses at a re­duced cost of €50. Any busi­ness in­ter­ested in pur­chas­ing one can con­tact Arklow Mu­nic­i­pal District on Ark­lowMD@ wick­low­coco.ie or 0402 42700.
