"Thanks to all the local organisations who have stalls and loaned us equipment. Grant Pinney is an amazing friend and DJ who has supported in 2018 and now in 2019 and beyond."

Canada Life - the largest employer in the area - donated £10,000 to help ensure the project is sustainable year on year, Nethercotts gave £400 and the community raised the rest.

The event is being held in Oakmere Park on Saturday from 3pm to 6pm - with the switch-on taking place at 5pm.
