Statement from Wickford at Christmas

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.


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
