Weston lights - graham-with-whitby-morrison-and-ice-cream-van

A South Cheshire student is unveiling his popular Weston Christmas Lights display in memory of his late sister.

Graham Witter has been working round the clock since October to turn Carters Green Farm in Weston into a festive lights spectacular.

And the switch on takes place this Thursday December 1, with the aim of beating last year’s £10,280 raised in aid of Donna Louise Hospice.

Graham, a business student at Manchester Met University in Crewe, said: “There are lots more lights this year, also some of the dairy building is being decorated for this year.

“As last year, Santa will be visiting every Friday, Saturday and Sunday and the last week before Christmas.

“So I am encouraging people to come along for a ‘sleigh selfie’ with Santa!”

This feature has been supported by local Crewe company, Whitby Morrison.

“I am hoping this will prove popular and will most certainly be something a little different!” added Graham.

“After the loss of my sister, Jessica, in December 2015 I am continuing to fundraise in her memory and my target for this display is to beat the £10,280 raised last year.

“All the funds from 2015 were used to fund new lighting equipment in the children’s sensory room refurbishment.

“I am inviting the whole community along to support my efforts and would like everyone to join in the festive fun!

“There have been many local organisations who have also come on-board to support me this year – and I wish to thank all of those local businesses.”

The lights display will be open from Thursday December 1 to Wednesday December 28, from 6.15pm to 9pm.

To visit the display if heading from Crewe, turn right off Weston Road (just after Crewe Hall) into Main Road towards Weston, then left into Jack Lane.

If heading from Weston, go over the A500 bypass bridge on Main Road and turn right in Jack Lane.
