Central Square will be transformed into a winter wonderland later this month as Labour-run Maghull Town Council joins forces with Maghull Town Team to ensure that Maghull ushers in the festive season in style.

The race is on to get everything ready in time for the start of the festive season when the town's tree and Christmas lights are switched on.

This year's big switch on will take place on Friday, November 29.

Central Square will be closed of to traffic from 2pm and there will be entertainment from the town's schools' choirs and children's entertainers starting from 5pm.

The festivities are being organised in conjunction with Maghull Town Council and Maghull Town Team.

Maghull Town Council's Labour chair of amenities, Cllr John Jarvis said he hoped that this year's switch-on would be the best ever.

Cllr Jarvis said: "Since Labour took control of Maghull Town Council, we have wanted to build up the Christmas lights switch-on festivities. In the past, it has been a very small affair, but we want the switch-on to become the start of the festive period. A time when we can get the whole community out, young, old and those in between, to really celebrate the start of Christmas

"So we have a full programme of events for this year's switch on from 5pm on Friday, November 29.

"We have our local school choirs, Melling Gospel Choir and the Salvation Army performing Christmas Carols. We have children's entertainers. There'll be refreshments available, burgers and hotdogs. There'll be something for everyone."

And local businesses are donating funds to add extra decorations to the festivities.

Cllr Jarvis said he hoped lots of people would come out and support the community event.

Cllr Jarvis said: "It's bound to be a great event. We've never closed off the square before. We want to make the switch-on as family friendly as possible.

"It could also be a real boost for our local businesses in and around the square.

"There has been a lot of organising behind the scenes that has gone on there is even more yet to do. But we have an excellent team that is pulling this together.

"We would like to thank everyone who has been involved and helped. And we'd particularly like to thank the businesses who have kindly donated to make this year's Christmas lights switch on bigger and better than ever."

Maghull Central Square will be closed off to traffic from 2pm on Friday, November 29. The entertainment will begin at 5pm and the lights switch-on will be at around 7pm, followed by Christmas carols from local school choirs, Melling Gospel Choir and the Salvation Army.
