9. Christmas Eve Carol event and tree location

9.1 Thank you for all of the responses in our community engagement.

CPC has reviewed all comments made by email, in person and on Facebook. This event is important to the community and it has been a difficult decision to make. The poll results showed in favour of moving the event to the Community Pavilion.

Poll results: 388 move to Pavilion, 151 remain at Keens Lane.

Present at the meeting were members of the main organising committee and they discussed all of the options available. This event is not run by CPC at all and the sincerest thanks given to everyone who has been involved in making this a huge success over the past 48 years and we hope it will continue long into the future.

The committee has agreed to move the event, the reasons are mainly down to health and safety as the event is gaining popularity every year and the safety of everyone is of the utmost importance. As you may have been aware the tree foundations in the Duo Chef Garden area are in danger of collapse and the tree had to be staked last year to stop it falling on the road / pavement or any pedestrians.

The event will therefore be relocated to the Community Pavilion on Christmas Eve 2018.

The organising committee will be looking at planning the event including investigating options for staging, amplification and lighting. The event will not change in its entirety – it is only in a new, safer area. All monies raised will still go to local charities appointed by the organising committee. If you wish to be involved helping organise this event please do not hesitate to contact us as the more help offered the easier it is for everyone on Christmas Eve.

CPC vote – 6 in favour of relocation. 2 against, 1 abstained.
