Gurnites will remember that last Christmas several citizens set about decorating the Christmas tree themselves as the Council didn't have the cash to do anything with the bare spruce set up on the Royal Bank grass.
Speaking at the River Community Council meeting last week Michael Green was enigmatic but he promised a "fabulous" Christmas celebration. He said:
"You will be absolutely amazed at Christmas when the lights are switched on." Michael told the meeting that he will be seeking cash help from the town's community councils to help pay for the event.
He then continued: "I wish I could tell you all about it but I've got to get permission and I could prejudice it if I told you what it was."
