The Town Council would like to thank all the local schools and musical organisations who took part in last night’s fantastic Christmas Light Switch On event held on the Bailey Head. The Mayor was joined on stage with local hero’s Rebecca Duxbury, who took the top spot at this year’s International Triathlon Union (ITU) World Championships, Dan Brown, local Youtuber who promotes Oswestry on his Sort Of Interesting site which boasts nearly 25000 subscribers and Oswestry Rugby Club, who have recently smashed a world record by organising a training session consisting of 1200 players!
Martin Portlock, organiser of the local OsCon Event, also deserves a mention for all his hard work in providing all the family entertainment during the evening. Popular local band,The Bartells, capped off this memorable evening following the successful light switch on and firework display. Overall the event really put everyone in the mood for Christmas!
