New Christmas Tree lights for Combwich

Each year OPRA provides a Christmas tree with lights for the  village, but as everyone now knows the  lights were vandalised and destroyed within hours of being switched on.  New lights have now been purchased (paid for by Harbour View Social Club) and will be switched on again  at around 4.30pm on Saturday  19th December.

Villagers are being asked to come along with any spare decorations for the tree from about 3.30 to help make this a special occasion.
