Denton Town Team needs you this Christmas

Denton Town Team is preparing for the town’s four-day Christmas market – and is appealing for everyone’s help.

The Town Team’s events sub-group are busy organising stalls, fun fair attractions, an ice skating rink, live entertainment, the Christmas Tree light switch-on and, of course, a visit from Santa!

Chair of Denton Town Team, Tony Moran, said: “We’ve already started to plan our four-day Christmas market in the civic square.

“People are busy organising, planning and raising funds. It’s purely a community event; we’re a not-for-profit organisation.

“Denton’s four-day Christmas market brings together the local community and promotes local businesses in the town, working in partnership with Tameside Council officers, local representatives and community groups.”

Thousands of people attended the markets last year and the Town Team couldn’t have done it without donations from the local community and local businesses.

They are hoping for the same level of support this year to make the markets a success once again.

“Last year, it was beyond our expectations,” said Tony.

“We had an estimated 2,800 people visit the four-day event, having introduced ‘Denton’s Got Talent’ for the very first time.

“That proved to be very popular with an array of local talent.

“For it to happen again this year, we are again asking for local businesses, community groups and individual donations to support our appeal.

“The Denton Town Team Christmas event appeal goes out to everyone who wishes to make a donation, no matter how small, so that Denton will have a traditional Christmas community event in 2016.”

Tony added: “I firmly believe that local residents and businesses are community minded in supporting our aims to bring together the community and businesses.

“We would like a memorable Christmas time for all the family and by making a donation and taking part in giving to Denton Town Team’s Christmas Market appeal, we can all make a difference.”
