When we found out that vandals has destroyed the Christmas lights and tree in Gildersome village, we felt we had to help.

We knew how much effort has been invested by Gildersome Parish Council and their volunteers to bring festive cheer to local residents.

We happily covered the cost of repairs and replacements and, once again, the remarkable volunteers spent hours of their free time returning the decorations to their original condition.

We believe that when small businesses and local communities work together the results can be remarkable. We hope you agree with us in thinking they look great.

“A big thank you the Calor Gas company, Gelderd Road for paying for the replacement of the Christmas tree lights that were vandalised. This gift is much appreciated by the whole community.
