Christmas Lights

Some time ago, I decided to form the Machynlleth Chamber of Trade, a committee that has raised £37k for the Machynlleth Christmas Lights over the last 15 years. This incredible amount was achieved through a number of fundraising events, such as raffles and cake stalls, and with the help of local shopkeepers. The money has been used to buy better quality lights, as well as keep them regularly maintained. There have been quite a few long nights as a family spent maintaining the Christmas lights, which can involve replacing over 2000 bulbs a year.
