Steve Barclay MP said: “A big well done is due to the Chatteris Christmas Lights committee on obtaining this well deserved funding from the Lloyds community Fund. The community did a great job in pulling together to vote for the Lights Committee. The team never fail to put on a brilliant display and fill the town with Christmas Cheer.
“I am very much looking forward to seeing their creative displays this year and would encourage everyone to head down to Market hill this weekend for the official opening and brilliant festive atmosphere.”
