Following our story last month launching the 'Light Up Calne For Christmas' initiative, we received a great response from the good people of Calne.

The idea is the brainchild of Calne resident, Claire Willoughby who felt that it would be nice if the town could come together to make this Christmas extra special for the children.

Currently the switch on is planned for 6pm on 5th December.

So many readers got in touch to say they were happy to join in, we thought we would share the map showing all the people who have committed to the idea so far.

If you would like to join in - let us know by email: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. and we will add you to the map.
