Story

Bloxwich town centre is the most deprived town in Walsall.
Bloxwich town centre partnership works endlessly to improve the town and the facilities on offer for all who work, live and visit the area.
In 2012, the local authority proposed not to deliver Christmas lighting in the town due to budget cuts. As a result of this, the town centre businesses worked together and secured funding to purchase Christmas tree lighting in case none was delivered through the local authority.
The lighting was installed into 14 key trees in the town running throughout the whole town centre main High Street. The lighting is amazing and admired by all, encouraging new visitors to the Town Centre who shop in the small local businesses and use the local facilities. The community are so proud of the lighting as it showcases Bloxwich and all that makes it special.
This year due to the cost of repair and maintenance due to the severe damage caused during last winter we are unable to switch the lights on for all to see, visit and admire due to not securing the funding to do this.
We are seeking your help and support to pay for the works to the lights to be repaired, and switched on for the people of Bloxwich, giving something special back to the people, its community and its businesses who work tirelessly all year to provide local events and opportunities for the community who live in deprivation to experience something positive, happy and new in their town and their lives.
Our aim is to continue to improve Bloxwich to ensure all lives are better because of the work the partnership and the local community does in the town. we are seeking your support to help us continue to improve Bloxwich and deliver the lighting that is admired by all for all who work, live and visit the town.
Our pledge to all supporters is to ensure the lighting scheme is switched in December until March 2017 to allow you the opportunity to see the lighting in it truest form as a thank you for your kind support
