Light up Rectory Park

Houghton Feast is a timeless fixture in the calendar each year and the grounds around the Old Rectory should be part of the fun once again!

We're looking to raise enough money to install lighting through the park from The Broadway down to the playing fields - with illuminations for all the family in-between...

Help us Light up Rectory Park in 2021 - for more information, see our dedicated Lighting page:
