4th January 2012 THE GREAT GRESLEYS LIGHT SWITCH ON

The Gresleys always looks spectacular during the run up to Christmas. No expense appears to be spared to make The Gresleys the brightest, prettiest neighbourhood in Ross-on-Wye and a big switch on ceremony is held each year, which raises a lot of money for Macmillan Cancer Support. Almost every house in The Gresleys is lit up; many have moving, singing and dancing snowmen, Santas etc. in their gardens and, on the occasion of the switch on many homes had stalls set up outside tempting people to play competitions or try out the Tombola etc.

A group of young musicians sang and played some lovely Christmas music this year two and many people were pleased to put some money into their donation bucket. I have always been keen to attend The Gresleys lights switch on but had until now been unable due to work commitments. My attendance on 4th December was also to take a sneaky photograph of my friend's daughter, sister and brother for a present for her mum. Apparently, she was very pleased with her gift.


The Tombola stall for children was very popular and lots of money was raised here for Macmillan.

This group of young musicians kept the crowds very entertained with their Christmas music.

A firework marks the start of the switch on itself.

Most of the homes at The Gresleys are beautifully lit for Christmas.

Another beautifully lit house.

Many homes in the neighbourhood also had wonderful Christmas garden features.
