Residents in Exton are calling on people to sponsor a Christmas light for loved ones to help raise funds for the village church.
Villagers plan to set up a Christmas tree on the village green outside the Fox and Hounds pub as a tree of love and remembrance. The tree will be lit with white lights and people are being asked to make a donation of £3 to sponsor a light in memory of a loved one. A book of remembrance will be available for donors to record a message of remembrance.
Funds raised will go towards the village church.
The lights will be switched on at the Exton and Greetham School children’s carol service on December 7 at 6pm on the village green.
To sponsor a light and make a donation, call Jo Downton on 01572 811576.
