Stone Town Council’s Christmas lights switch-on is a major event for the town that we did not want to pass by without celebration. We have therefore teamed up with A Little Bit of Stone and two students from Staffordshire University to bring an on-line lights switch-on event.
Students Olivia Bethell and Amber Mottershead of Staffordshire University who are now alumni have been studying for their digital marketing masters degree. Olivia and Amber described the light switch on as ‘the happiest night of the year’ for Stone and didn’t want the occasion to go unmarked as they felt the Christmas Lights Switch on was the Kick Start for the Stone Christmas season.
Olivia and Amber approached the Council with the offer to put together a short video to mark the switching on of the lights. This video will be hosted by A Little Bit of Stone and broadcast by them at 6:50pm on Thursday 19th November. It will include children’s Christmas wishes and show Santa and Dolly Daydream switching on the lights at 7:00pm.
Please note that there will be no actual switch-on event in the High Street itself, and residents are asked to watch the video safely in the comfort of their own homes.
Stone Tourism and Town Promotion Chairman Councillor Jill Hood said “I’m looking forward to the video and watching the lights switch-on. It would have been a sad time if we couldn’t have celebrated our Christmas Lights and I think it’s great that we will keep a sense of normality with what the students have done for the town.”
