Cllr. Terence Slowey’s Last Switch-On as Councillor
For as long as he has been councillor, Terence Slowey has been Master of Ceremonies at the Switch On of the Christmas Lights. Indeed, many years there would have been no lights except for the generous intervention of Terence in ensuring money was got to get the lights up and running. So after all these years, this Sunday will be Terence’s last as a sitting councillor and it would be right and fitting if all businesses and the community in general come out to see Terence give his last introduction to the Christmas Lights Switch On.
