At an Extra Ordinary meeting of Lymm Parish Council held on Thursday 10th November, the Parish Council voted to move the date of the event for 2022 to Christmas Eve, the 24th of December. The earlier decision to hold Carols on Friday 23rd of December was revisited following a request from several Parish Councillors.
The Carols event will only go ahead when the Parish Council demonstrates to Warrington Borough Council and the Emergency Services that it will be held safely. This must be in accordance with the Event Management Plan. There must be named and qualified individuals from the Parish Council and the local community, signed up to accept responsibility to fulfil key roles before and during the event. This is necessary because Lymm’s Carols from The Cross has become one of Warrington’s largest public events and safety is paramount.
The Events Committee was thanked for its work and it was stressed that the decision to hold the event on the 23rd was correctly and diligently taken on the basis of information available at the time.
The Parish Council looks forward to welcoming the public to Lymm village centre on Christmas Eve.
Cllr Bob Barr OBE
