A date for your diary..... the 2023 event will be on Saturday November 18th


The future of the lights depends very much on local people volunteering to help with the many tasks! We need to recruit new young volunteers! If you are prepared to help secure the future of the lights, you can find out more by emailing amblesidelights@btinternet.com
