The Christmas Float, which has been going for over 60 years, takes a lot of work to organise each year and every piece of the 'jigsaw' requires help from a great many people.

This includes:-

Hough Green Garage who lend us a vehicle to take the float around Widnes.
JET Engineering who provide a forklift truck to lift the float onto the vehicle.
Bristol Street Motors who provided fuel .
Ben Karalius, WMR Widnes, staff and family who drive for us each night.
Lloyd Pennington who provides valuable advice and help to make sure our music and speakers work properly.
Asda Widnes, for allowing us to bring our float and collect outside over a couple of weekends.
