Helpers needed by Angarrack Christmas Lights


The erection team are already hard at work and many thanks to them and all the people who've been volunteering to help even if it's just for an hour or two it all helps!  and I know they're very grateful for all assistance.

But we're asking for even more volunteers to help with Switch On night as well and you don't have to be any good at lifting things above your head or wiring things up.  read more »

Christmas Lights 2008 - disassembled

Enormous thanks are due to all the Lights Elves who turned out bright and early on a very cold Saturday morning to help with the taking down and storage of all the lights for another year.

After a long day, the last of the lights was successfully removed and stored ready for next year.

Angarrack Christmas Lights Switch On - Saturday 6th December 2008

After all the hard work in designing, creating, upgrading, building, configuring and funding the lights the switch on day finally arrived and the weather was kind - lovely clear skies - though that did make it rather chilly.

Many thanks to all in the village who helped make it all possible - including those who put up with being disrupted as the team worked so hard to setup all the lights and of course everyone from the hardworking Lights Committee.  read more »

Lights display among best | Western Morning News | December 14, 2000

THERE may only be 120 homes in the tiny village of Angarrack , near Hayle, but they certainly know how to put on a Christmas lights display to compete with the best of them.

On Saturday Sid Perry, one of the village¹s oldest residents, flicked the switch which transformed the small group of houses into a sea of colour with hundred and hundreds of lanterns and three large Christmas trees.

It is a real village effort with the decorations made by the men and the fundraising done by other members of the Christmas lights committee.  read more »
