Patchway Councillors brighten up Patchway in aid of Charity
Patchway Town Councillors, Isobel and Roland Walker, brought festive cheer to the residents of Patchway by illuminating their house in aid of the Mayor’s Charities.
The couple, who live on Coniston Road, delighted residents with their colourful array of lights and unique festive objects throughout the winter period, whilst raising money for the 2nd Patchway Scout Group and The Link Club. The display consisted of a multitude of lights, a dazzling sleigh and a hand-made igloo for residents to see and take pictures with. The display was one of many wonderful display’s in our Town and the community feedback from residents was extremely positive.
On their display and raising money for the charities, Isobel and Roland said, ‘We really love getting into the festive spirit and sharing it with our community. The last year has proved really tough for everyone and we just wanted to add a bit of joy and fun back to our community. We thoroughly enjoy seeing how happy people are when they visit our display and it makes us even happier, knowing that we are going to help two really good Patchway charities with the money that we raise. The decorations are a labour of love and we are especially delighted with our igloo, which we made ourselves for this winter! We are lucky to have such a giving community and we are so thrilled that there are so many displays for all of our residents to see across the town!’.
Isobel and Roland have raised a massive £339 for the charities with their displays at Halloween and Christmas. Isobel also raised £60 by hand knitting different characters for residents, all of which will go towards making a difference in our community.
