Christmas 2022

Christmas is here in Leigh.  We hope you enjoy the new lighting scheme around the town and in Library Gardens (there are some lights that are not on due to column faults out of our control but have been reported).  The lights will be on until 5th January 2023.  

Due to operational and administrative burdening costs, the 'Leigh Lights' event hasn't taken place but Leigh Town Council has provided a host of other activities which are detailed here and updates can be found on our social media posts as well as our new community engagement app.
