Alsager Town Council and Alsager Partnership is delighted to announce sponsorship of Alsager’s Christmas tree once again by Dutton Contractors Ltd.
Richard Dutton, Managing Director, remarked “As a company, we are delighted to sponsor the Christmas Tree which is a focal point in Alsager during the Christmas Activities. We especially enjoy attending the Christmas Market and Lights Switch On, which has become such a focal point to mark the start of the Christmas celebrations in the town.”
On Sunday 24th November Alsager saw a crowd of approximately 10,000 visitors to the town for their annual Christmas Market & Lights Switch On... and what a Switch On it was!
This is one time of the year that several community groups join forces to deliver a spectacle in the town that has now gained the reputation of being the biggest and best Lights Switch on in Cheshire East.
Friends and supporters of Milton Park Gardens are shown proudly displaying the Green Flag awarded earlier in the year. The award is given in recognition of maintaining a well managed park that is open for all to enjoy.
The Green Flag Awards set the benchmark for the management of recreational outdoor spaces across the UK and around the world.
Alsager Community Orchard is situated off Leicester Avenue and was planted earlier this year by a team of volunteers led by Antony Cooke and Hilary Robinson.
Some of you will have seen the orchard at its best in late spring when the wildflowers were blooming and the trees were starting to bear fruit. As the summer progressed the site became overgrown and inaccessible, though the intention was that the orchard would provide a habitat for a wide range of wildlife and local people would be able to pick and enjoy the fruits. Take a look here to see how the area has been transformed...
On Sunday 8th September, Alsager Partnership transformed the town into a little Italy with the town’s annual food & drink festival… bringing a little taste of Italy to Cheshire East along with a record number of visitors to the festival.
In its fifth year, thousands of visitors once more flocked to Alsager to enjoy an array of fabulous food, family fun, Italian supercars and Scooters alongside street performers, live entertainment, competitions and more. This was an occassion of interest to all ages.
