Results of Christmas Decorations Survey

Diana Brushwood and Tracy Haupt would like to thank all those who took the time to complete their recent Christmas decorations survey. Three questions were asked and a total of 83 people responded. 

A whopping 99% of people liked the 2019 decorations overall, with a number making particular reference to the small trees and getting children involved (37%), the wheels on the bridge (14%) and the robins on the post box (16%).

When asked what people didn’t like, 65% of people said “nothing at all” whilst others referred to the blue lights on the tree (10%), artificial garlands (2%) and the small trees (height and/or dim lights) - 8%. 

For Christmas 2020, 47% said they’d like to see exactly the same as 2019 or more of the same, whilst other ideas suggested included having more trees (19%), a more coordinated approach from the retailers with regards to their tree lights (11%), lights across the one way street/on lamp posts (6%), nativity/grotto/penguins scene (6%) and 5% requesting for the ‘switch on’ to be scheduled at the same time as Carols on the Green.

With a recent county wide ruling preventing anything being attached to cast iron lamp posts and the village being within a conservation area, with many listed buildings, this limits what is possible. However the ladies are determined to try and add something extra this year, whilst complying with the majority vote. 

Fundraising will be required again to make Milford on Sea village looks special again next Christmas, and details will be released in due course.
