Collaboration key to Penrith Christmas lighting display


Our thanks to Penrith Town Council who have worked in partnership with Penrith BID to deliver this year’s Christmas lighting display. The town council supported the BID to deliver the event with a £4,965 grant to cover essential infrastructure works to enable the new, extended lighting display to be installed.

Mark Rudhall, deputy chair of Penrith Town Council and deputy mayor of Penrith, said: “It’s terrific that we were able to support the Penrith BID with the Christmas lighting display which is so important in creating that festive buzz about town.

“The Penrith BID play such an important role in the town, and I was glad to see the positive re-vote back in June.

“The BID is a key partner of the town council and I look forward to us working together on projects for the greater benefit of the whole town in the near future.”

Darren Broad, chair of the Penrith BID, said: “I am proud that Penrith BID have been able to deliver an exceptional Christmas lights scheme in Penrith after a tumultuous period with the re-vote.

“The BID prides itself on delivering for the town, and I sincerely hope everybody enjoys this year’s display!

“An enormous thank you must also go out to all the local businesses who primarily funded the lights – making this year’s display possible!

“It’s great to see joint working between the BID and Penrith Town Council, which I hope will continue over the course of the next five years of the BID term.”
