Individuals of Whitstable have 11 days to fork out ₤ 22,000 in a bid get the town sparkling with Christmas lights.The chamber
of commerce, which remained in a three year contract for the lights, announced it might no longer support the job after pending debts reached ₤ 14,251.
Undeterred, the pot has actually already been filled with ₤ 6,000, indicating there is half a possibility of the town seeing a return of festivity next month.
Time might be going out
With eleven days to go, president of the organisation Brian Hitcham fears time may be going out to raise the funds In spite of a sterling effort, president of the organisation Brian Hitcham
fears time might be running out.He said: “Exactly what we have attained in three days is amazing however the risk is trying is trying to keep the momentum going. “The severe truth is that while everyone appears to desire lights, too couple of people and organisations are prepared to contribute sufficient funds to pay for them.
“We are sorry for the frustration that this might trigger.”
