Christmas ideas wanted

Bakewell Town Council is asking residents to contribute their ideas for the public face of Christmas celebrations in the town.

Mayor Frank Hall said: “We are inviting the people of Bakewell to let us have their ideas about what we should do for Christmas 2011.”

The traditional Christmas tree and crib are to be reinstated to their usual positions in the centre of Bath Gardens.

The Town Council is looking for suggestions on where to place last year’s controversial Christmas Tableau and members are considering a site for it to the side of the central area in Bath Gardens.

Comments and suggestions can be sent to the Town Clerk, Town Hall, Bakewell DE45 1BT or emailed to
