Residents in Starbeck flocked to Starbeck Community Day today to help raise money for this year’s Christmas lights.

The annual event took place at Harrogate Railway Athletic FC and saw a range of stalls, barbecue, licensed bar and raffle prizes.

Chrissie Holmes, of the Starbeck Christmas Lights Appeal which organises the event, said the goal was to raise £5,000.

She said:

“We are here to raise funds for the Christmas lights, it is an annual event.

“We need to raise £5,000 each year for the cost to put them [the lights] up and to maintain them.”

The small group of volunteers are aiming to light up Starbeck High Street with the lights, which would run up to Forest Head Lane.

To help in the fundraising effort, prizes and events were on display to raise money.

Harrogate and Knaresborough MP, Andrew Jones, also had a clinic at the event to speak with constituents about issues.
