2013 has seen a surfeit of reports about the High Street and there’s no doubt times are testing for many; retailers and residents alike.
But despite this a goodly number of people and organisations in Liskeard continue to believe that the town has a future and are prepared to put in hours and hours to ensure things happen here & demonstrate they love where they live & work.
Name checking everyone would be dangerous, so I’m not going to attempt it! At every step there’s people who do a huge number of tasks behind the scenes; whether that’s checking cables for Christmas lights going up, making & distributing brochures advertising the town’s offer, washing up at events, playing music or ploughing through the paperwork needed to make a thing happen – the list is endless!
The ‘Team’ in Town Team was clearly in evidence last night again. Thank you to all who played a part and especially to some small but strong kitchen helpers and those late at night after clearing up, who processed the feedback forms & visitor counts or collected in banners.
546 counted through the door, the majority having visited the town beforehand and all of whom said they’d be back to visit again in the future.
Check your Christmas brochure for the things coming up before the end of the year, there really is something for everyone!
Dickensian delights next weekend, the Lions Christmas bingo, the Mayor’s Carol Concert..and Liskeard’s very own radio station will take you right up to Christmas day!
Peace & good tidings to all for Christmas 2013.
