Southwick Green Christmas Lights

Firstly, the Sunderland Forum is all about local issues. The City of Sunderland obviously includes, Washington, Houghton and Hetton. However, we allow news, views and gossip from all areas surrounding Wearside.

Southwick Green Christmas Lights

Things look good on Southwick Green with the Christmas lights all working, they certainly brighten the place up.
I drove past there last night and they set an example in my opinion.
In contrast, I drove through Pallion and they have a few festive boards but that's about it :?
Looks like Pallion has a village theme.
I haven't seen the City Centre lights yet but I think they focus on Keel Square.
Just wondering if there are any other decent festive lights about in Sunderland?
I might have the day off today!

Pallion has little soldiers attached to the pavement posts I think, well that's what my impression was.

Southwick looks good but if they added a few more lights it would be fantastic. Pallion is a little drab in comparison but then again the Green has more scope for Christmas lights. I think the council could make these places a great place for the kids to visit. Money is tight but this is for the kids.

I like the sign posts in Pallion.
Actually, since Pallion has a main road going right through it, they done a decent job.

Aye Southwick Green looks nice but I remember the Christmas tree being far bigger, or is it me just being an old git :lol:

Fulwell has a decent showing but not enough lights, especially the tiny things on the lampposts that may as well not be there :lol:
There's a canny display which seems to be like water flowing down but I never had a close look at it.
Also, the university on Chester Road looks decent.
Sunderland City Centre should really have more in Fawcett Street etc.
All in all I can't complain too much about the lights.
