Getting switched on

Date published: Monday, November 29, 2010

ROUGHYEDS fans are invited to attend the official switch-on of Hollinwood’s Christmas lights by club chairman Chris Hamilton this Wednesday, November 1.

It takes place at the site of the former Roxy Cinema — less than a couple of miles from the club’s new home at Whitebank and in an area where Roughyeds have been working hard in the past six months to develop community links.

People are asked to congregate from 6.30pm for the singing of carols before the switch-on at 7pm at which Chris will be accompanied by the club mascot, Roary the Roughyed.

Oldham Community Radio (99.7 fm) will also be present and will be broadcasting a live show direct from the switch-on.
