Romiley Village Christmas light switch on and festive market takes place this weekend, Saturday 23rd November 2019. The market and light switch on will take place in Romiley Precinct close to Romiley Forum. The fun starts from 11.00 am and goes on until 6.00 pm.
We have a festive market and there will be entertainment all day, including a DJ and performances by local schools. We are also being joined by Father Christmas, who will be in his grotto from 1.00 pm.
If you are driving into the village and park in either the Romiley Arms or Dye Lane pay and display car parks, then you can claim £1.00 towards your parking, if you spend over £10.00 in TickittyBoo, Poppies and Daisies or Cranes the Jewellers.
This Saturday Father Christmas will be in his grotto from 1.00 pm until 4.30 pm, ably assisted by his festive elves. If you are bringing little ones to visit Santa please remember that they will need to be in the queue by 4.00 pm at the very latest, as we would hate for any little ones to queue up on a chilly day and not get to see Santa.
The event is organised by The Romiley Traders Association, which has been busy this year. We’ve had three brilliant Romiley Food On Friday events, ten monthly Romiley Village markets and contributed to a number of local campaigns. We will be sharing details about the light switch on through our various public Facebook pages and in a number of local of community Facebook groups.
We have decided to remove the Jobs Board from the I Love Romiley website. Local businesses are still able to share details of local jobs on both this website and the Love Romiley Facebook page.
Organisation is underway for the 2019 Romiley Carnival and Street Parade.
We are delighted to have so many people from the community volunteer to help organise the first street parade through the village for many years. Whilst there are a number of logistical hurdles to overcome, the overwhelming positive feedback received so far tells us the people of Romiley and the surrounding areas really want to be involved in this event and we are sure it will be a great success.
We will post updates as the pieces come together and will be asking for the help of the community, schools, voluntary groups and businesses to source expertise, materials and services which will help make this Carnival an event to remember.
The Romiley Village light switch on takes place on Saturday 18th November in Romiley Precinct.
Romiley Village is full of amazing shops and vibrant cafes and on Saturday the precinct will also have a full programme of entertainment from 11.00 am and a festive market including a visit from Father Christmas who will be spending the afternoon in Santa’s grotto.
We have relaunched the Business Directory on our website. Unfortunately we had to remove the facility after a number of bogus entries were submitted, some of whom were a security risk.
If you have a business that operates in Romiley and would like to include your details on the directory please submit your details. Please be aware however that entries will not appear instantly and that we reserve the right to remove any entries without prior notification. All suspicious posts will be reported to the Police.
The directory was created as a way of promoting local businesses and is offered free of charge to local Romiley businesses. Business Directory
One of the best things about Romiley is the wealth of activity that takes place in and around the village. Here at Love Romiley we are keen to help share the details of local groups and community events.
If you would like to include information about your group here on the I Love Romiley Website, please get in touch. There is no charge for including your details and we are happy to include a link to your existing or Facebook page if you have one.
If you are running a local business rather than a community based group we have recently relaunched our business directory.
Welcome to a brand new Romiley website here to promote all the positive things about Romiley Village.
The thinking behind the I Love Romiley website was to create a place which contained information about the many events that take place in Romiley and share details of our amazing local shops and businesses.
The website includes a business directory, a jobs board and free pages for local community groups. Over the next few days, we will be testing the site to make sure that there aren’t any problems and adding details of local businesses, events and community groups.
