We have been made aware of rumours circulating, plus a media report that the Wickford at Christmas Street Fair will not be happening on 26th November in the High Street.
THIS IS COMPLETELY UNTRUE.
The Wickford at Christmas Committee has worked hard fundraising, co-ordinating and will continue to do so right up until the day of our event as always. Basildon Council has never funded Wickford at Christmas apart from making a donation each year. This year they have donated£1000 and for which we are very grateful.
Please rest assured that the Christmas Lights and Christmas Street Fair are still planned to go ahead. As a highlight of the Wickford community calendar, we look forward to welcoming everyone on the day.
Thank you everyone for your Support,
The Wickford at Christmas Team
