Bring back the Christmas Lights on Church Street!

0 have signed. Let’s get to 1,500!

Harborough District Council have announced that there will not be any Christmas Lights put up on Church Street this year due to "health and safety" concerns.

Harborough Council says existing electrical connections and brackets no longer comply with regulations and there are ‘challenges’ relating to the installation of new brackets, eyebolts and new power supplies to accommodate the cross-street festive lighting.

Harborough District Council needs to put some funding towards fixing the issue.

Personal story
Church Street is a lovely small street in Harborough that's full of independent businesses who work hard all year round in the town. The Christmas Lights have been a beautiful feature in Church Street for many years, with lots of customers coming to the street especially to see them.

As a street we are really upset to hear that the Christmas lights will no longer be decorating our street and hope that the council can put a plan in place to put up the lights this year.
