Torquay WILL have Christmas lights this year - after The Breeze stepped in to save the day.
We know how special the Festive season is to our listeners' so we've decided to fund the lights, so everyone can celebrate the magic of Christmas in Torquay.
The big switch on will be hosted by Breeze Breakfast Show presenter Nick Jackson on Saturday 19th November. It's an occasion you and your family won't want to miss and the centrepiece of an afternoon of fun, games and celebrations. Stay tuned to The Breeze over the next couple of weeks as we announce a special line up of guests to help Nick with the big switch on.
Just last week it was announced there would be no Christmas lights in Torquay because of problems funding them...but thanks to The Breeze that's all changed and Susie Colley from the Chamber of Commerce says today's announcement is great news for the area:
'People come down to Torquay and want to have a lovely selection of lights and a lovely selection of shops. We have the beautiful bay and the lights will be reflected all the way down through the town'
Now we've got the feelgood factor, the shops will be able to enjoy Christmas, they will invite people in to spend their money in this town.
I hope everybody in Torquay and Torbay will be grateful for The Breeze stepping up to the mark to help. This shows the power of communication and the power of the Chamber of Commerce in working with one of the fantastic companies we have in Torquay.
It's just what we wanted!'
