  Hockley Christmas Lights Street Event

June 2017:  The Festive Lights Committee are moving forward with the arrangements for this year's Christmas Lights event. Stall Bookings are being received and the schools and other local groups are getting ready to entertain again on stage.  We have received offers of help from the community and are working on some new ideas for you to enjoy during the afternoon.  If you would like to have a stall or be involved please contact the Parish Office on 01702 207707.

Hockley Christmas Lights – Street Event is back!

The Parish Council are pleased to announce that it has agreed to host the Christmas Lights Street Event on Saturday 25th November this year.

We thought you would like to know something about how an event of this size is managed.    We regularly attract some 2500 visitors on the day so before we can start on the fun bits we have to make sure we have all the formalities in place to obtain the licenses and permissions which every public event has to comply with now. Once this is underway we can concentrate on the installation of the lights in Spa Road, Southend Road and Broad Parade. These are funded by the council and switched on at the Street Event, staying up until New Year.   Health and Safety is a high priority and is hitting all public events hard now, so we have called upon professional advice and guidance.  Crowd control for the event is important to ensure everyone is safe should an emergency occur. We rely on volunteer councillors for crowd control who, this year, will be supported by a security company to control traffic.  Rayleigh Mill and Rochford Rotary have also kindly agreed to help us out.

We know from your feedback that you enjoy a family event with market stalls which give charities and our local independent businesses an opportunity to offer ideas for Christmas gifts. The hog roast and mulled wine are also popular especially if the afternoon is on the chilly side. The Chamber of Trade supports us with sponsorship and the shops stay open in Spa Road which adds to the atmosphere.

A stage unit is brought in to give our youngsters a chance to show off their talents.   Dancers and choirs perform during the afternoon and we work with the schools to make sure they are safe as everyone has to be on the ball when excited youngsters are involved. A Children’s Christmas Colouring Competition is held at the Parish Hall and other activities are arranged to keep the young and young at heart entertained.   Christmas is not Christmas without Santa and his sleigh which is brought to the event by Rochford Rotary. The gifts are provided by the Parish Council and over 200 children visit the grotto.

The event is widely publicised with flyers and other advertising material produced in-house to keep costs to a minimum.  We hope you will come along and support the event again.   If you would like to take part in any way either by helping with the event arrangements, performing on stage or having a stall please let our Assistant Clerk Kate Smiles know on 01702 207707.

Children's Christmas Colouring Competition 2016

Saturday 26th November

Youngsters between pre-school and 11 years were asked to colour a Gingerbread House and 114 entries arrived at the Old Fire Station during the morning. Our thanks go to Graham Tarte who judged the competition.   The winners were invited to the Parish Hall in the afternoon to receive their prizes and afterwards turned on the Christmas Tree Lights in Southend Road .  Hockley Chamber of Trade & Commerce supported the competition by donating £1 to Little Havens for each entry received. All the entries can be seen at Hockley Library over the Christmas period.

 

                    Winners                                                                               Well done to all the entrants

Important News : Hockley Christmas Lights Street Event 2016

The Parish Council has received lots of feedback regarding the 2016 Christmas Lights Event.

Hockley has enjoyed an event for the past 15 years and it has grown in popularity over that time. The Council fund the Christmas Lights in the village and, when the Street Event was run by the local traders supported them by providing marshals. Four years ago the traders were unable to continue and the council agreed to take it on. An afternoon family event was organised by our volunteer committee with support from the community and traders.This year the Parish Council have encountered some late operational and safety problems which we are unlikely to resolve in time. It is also unlikely we will have the support of either the police or the fire service due to their other priorities.  As we would not wish to compromise public safety or scale the event down, the council has made the difficult decision to postpone the activities in Spa Road this year rather than be faced with a last minute cancellation situation. We have of course made efforts to address the issues before us and discussed our options with all parties involved. We are all very disappointed but would like to assure everyone that we have started planning for 2017 and will roll out other attractions which can be safely managed. The Christmas lights are going up in Hockley as usual but there will be no switch on ceremony. We will still hold the Children’s Colouring Competition at the Parish Hall.

If any of our local charities would like to contact Rayleigh Town Council we have arranged for them to offer space at their event on Thursday 24th November so you do not miss a fund raising opportunity this year.

If you or anyone you know is willing to join the Festive Lights Committee please let us know as additional support would be appreciated to enable the event to continue next year.

HOCKLEY CHRISTMAS LIGHTS SWITCH ON 21ST NOVEMBER 2015 A big thank you to all those who ventured out to support us on a cold and breezy November afternoon to celebrate the switch on of the Christmas Lights.  Rochford Rotary came along with Santa and his sleigh and handed out over 200 gifts to the children who visited his grotto.  32 hardy stallholders battled the weather and the teams on the lights and fireworks again gave Hockley a fitting finale to the afternoon.  The support of the our volunteers, emergency services, local business sponsors and all the community is very much appreciated. We hope you enjoyed the event and wish you a very happy christmas and peaceful new year.

**************************************************************************

We had a record 225 Christmas Tree Baubles for the Children's Colouring Competiton and Hockley Chamber of Trade sponsored £1 for each entry, presenting cheques to local charities. Thanks go to Graham Tarte who heriocally took on the judging for us this year. The winners came on stage with "Elsa, Anna and Cinderella" from Tiddlywinks Partytime to receive their prizes before switching on the lights. The entries will be on display at the Library over the festive season.

Youngsters from all three of our primary schools took part in the entertainment on stage this year along with performances from Hands4Voices Signing Choir, Mr Dickie Bows Jivers and their Charleston Group.
