Kidsgrove residents have been commenting about the missing Christmas lights in Market Street and Heathcote Street. Residents have been asking where are the festive lights for the main town centre with Kidsgrove being very selective on its festive offering.
Driving through Kidsgrove on the A50 it has been evident that a festive offering has been installed on lamp posts and outside Kidsgrove Town Hall, however make a trip into the main shopping area of Market Street and Heathcote Street and you will be struggling to see any indication that it’s the festive period.
No doubt cost will be sited as an excuse for the limited festive offerings, however given this is a time when we are told Kidsgrove has a group who are meant to be promoting shopping local in Kidsgrove, it seems strange to neglect the town centre. The official switch on of “part” of Kidsgrove is Saturday afternoon.
