The residents of Runton Road, Branksome, Poole have been lighting up for Christmas for over 20 years and this year they will light up for the first time on Saturday 8th December.
There will be entertainment from Paul Walker ahead of the switch on before Samantha Louise Emma ( Miss Poole ) will be counting down to the switch on at 5.30pm.
After light up Paul Walker and special guest Susie Kimber will be providing more entertainment until 8.00pm.
The Runton Road Christmas Lights will remain on throughout the festive period. They begin coming on usually between 5.00pm and 6.00pm and begin going off at 10.00pm so the children that live in the road can get to sleep. Of course please remember that people live and work in this road!
The best way to enjoy the lights is to park at the bottom of the road or along in another road and walk up. Runton Road is a Cul-De-Sac so it gets very busy with traffic turning.
And please bring your spare change as there will be collection boxes raising money for local charities. This year’s chosen charities are Julia’s House, Forest Holme Hospice, the RNLI and also a little girl called Ivy Louise who has neuroblastoma and her family are raising funds for treatment in the USA.
Other entertainment over the festive period include:
Citrus Singers 11th December 6.30pm – 7.30pm
Vocal Impact children’s Choir 13th December 6.30pm – 7.30pm
The Bitter Sweet Harmony & Care Free Choir 22nd December 6.00pm – 7.30pm
Alexia Jolie Lewis 23rd December 6.00pm – 7.30pm
And hopefully a certain Jolly Fella will be popping by throughout the festivities but dates and times are unavailable due to him being such a busy man this time of the year!
