Fantastic Display, Particularly the Christmas tree lights.
Very much appreciated
A Big thankyou to all the volunteers
Well done Melksham on a stunning display. My late father Don Hurst was one of the original members of the Xmas Lights Appeal and I know he would be so pleased to see what the town has done to improve every year. My parents lived in Longford Rd and as I still visit this road, I am curious to know why there isn't the usual fantastic display at Colin Goodhind's house at the entrance to Longford? The nearby houses look brilliant though!

Thank you to all who make the xmas lights such a lovely display every year. you should be proud of yourselves.
We would like to thank the volunteers who worked so hard putting up the lights i know they worked late into the evenings and worked weekends and im sure the people of Melksham applaud the wonderful show of lights, i would say the best around by miles

WOW! Well done to all involved, very very very impressed this year, you do us proud. Thankyou
Well done! Other towns, every one of them, should be hiding in embarasment after paying thousands to so called professionals when you can do all this for next to nothing. Amazing, shame that everything in Town isn’t done by you, your commitment and professionalism is incredible and you are a true credit to our Town! I love the Tree, and the drive in from Spa Road must be the best view of lights ANYWHERE!??
Unbelievable what you have done for the Town this year, and it seems as if you guys were in town every hour of every day for weeks fixing up the lights and testing them. Well done on creating such a wonderful display and fantastic switch on event, other towns need to take some advice from you!

I was so impressed with Melkshams Christmas lights, such a difference from when I lived there over a decade ago!! no longer a bland mish mash of whatever could be found in the bottom of the Christmas box but a well thought out colour co-

Me and my husband took our 2 girls into town on saturday to see father christmas and to support our community in the christmas fayre. The christmas grotto looked fabulous and i made sure i told "santas helpers" too, i was very impressed with the amount of effort that was put into it. Later in the afternoon my husband took the girls back down to see the lights switched on and they loved it which is what its all about for me. I just wanted to say that i appreciate the amount of effort that the people of Melksham have put into lighting up our town it looks great. A big thank you from the Lloyd family x

After having a go at your man in town for working overtime tonight at my expense then getting a hostile but fair reaction I didnt expect, I thought I'd look at the site 'Paul' told me about and say how amazed, and grateful I am for the work you do for nothing -
Amazing! Seem's everytime I am in town your at work somewhere! are these the best lights in any town anywhere?? Love the Longford Road sign! Cant wait to see the house lights on soon!
Pam S, Forest
Just like to say that after watching the 'guys and gals' every weekend freezing in town in an attempt to get the lights done in time for the switch on, i was utterly thrilled when my daughter Abbie Dark switched on the christmas lights last weekend. you all do a fantastic job and don't get any where near enough praise. BETH xx
Beth Dark, Melksham
Wow! Between the town and the amazing house we must have the best lights in the UK? My kids love them all and its so good to see there are still some good people out there who work to do this for the town. thank you all so much!
The house in Longford Road is amazing, you must have a lot of plugs!!!! town looks great as ever, we dont need a Z list celebrity to switch them on when they look as good as they do! Well done all.
I love the Christmas lights! And I love the fact that Melksham seems to be coming into its own as The Christmas Town. Each year I go see them and feel like a child again, jumping up and down, clapping my hands. We appreciate all your hard work!

This is my first Melksham Christmas experience. The tree is the town is a lovely sight. The Health and Safety folk where I live in Somerset have banned our tree for the last few years cos it could fall on someone so it is delightful to see your tree standing proud and festooned. The Longford Road displays are out of this world. I have never seen anything like it in my life! You have to take your hat off to people who donate all their spare time to please others and raise money for good causes. We need more of those kind of people where I live!
Great light up again this year I live in Chippenham i bought some of my friends all the way from St helena to see the lights this year you will continue to get more international visitors at this rate! keep it up
John Clingham, Chippenham
Wish more towns put the effort in that Melksham does, I live in Trowbridge and our lights are not bad, but Melksham is in a whole different league! Well done to all in the town and houses.
What a fantastic display again this year! Our poor little town always plays second fiddle to Trowbridge and Chippenham so it's great to outshine them once a year. Just one small gripe -
These lights are amazing and put little old melksham on the map ...I go up every year to donate money all for such a good cause ...well done to longford road, We've brought visitors from afar to see the lights over the last few years.
