Well another year has begun and the Christmas festivities are over for another year. Caistor’s community has witnessed many successful events over the past year culminating in the Town Council’s Christmas Market and Lights Switch On,  featuring Goldilocks & the three bears from the CATS pantomime and the Lions’ Victorian Market. This year we had a forty six foot tree in the Market Place, suitably bedecked, sponsored by Air Fire & Rescue which looked amazing and is a great achievement for a small town. 

A big thank you to all those involved in making Christmas in Caistor so special which includes: Hansards for their handling of the tree support block and the lifting out of the tree;   B.S.B.  for providing transport of the tree from Birmingham;  Somerscales Timber Merchants Ltd. for lifting the tree into place and Phil Wilson who assisted in the mounting the lights on the tree and around the Market place.   All these companies gave their services free of charge. And, of course, the team comprising Caistor Lions, Caistor Goes and Caistor Town Council. 

I, on behalf of the town council, wish everyone a very happy and prosperous New Year and I thank all those who work so very hard to make Caistor an excellent place to live.

Cllr Alan Somerscales

Caistor Town Mayor

  1. I agree with all you have said but would like to mention the 24 householders who took part in the Caistor Living Advent Calendar. Each family undertook to decorate a window in their home to represent each day in advent and every evening at 6pm another window was revealed. They were astonishingly diverse and beautiful, and were situated throughout Caistor. It is a great pity if you missed them. I hope they repeat it next year
