For 2016’s Christmas lights we would like you draw a scene showing stickmen engaging in a Christmas activity. You can be as imaginative or as crazy as you like. We like both traditional and humorous designs.  

Draw your design on the application found here. The easiest designs for us to copy use simple coloured lines so try and avoid colouring in sections. Our favourite 8 designs will be made up on giant steel frames and erected on Peel Street for the switch-on on Saturday December the 3rd. The designs need to be handed in at Marsden Library by Saturday the 12th of November or can be emailed to us at marsden.community.association@gmail.com.  The competition is open to all ages – children and adults alike.

On Saturday the 1st of October we held a fund-raising quiz in the Marsden Mechanics hall. The event was a sell out with the Mechanics packed and twenty teams involved. The event raised a huge £922  towards this years Christmas lights. The money will be spent on illuminating the trees by the river Colne and on light features to run down Peel Street.
