A Facebook group has been created to ’MOSES PETER TO TURN ON THE CHRISTMAS LIGHTS IN TORQUAY’.
The group/event has been created by 17 year old, Kate Penberthy, from Torquay.
Currently, there are over 3000 that are on the event’s page, after only being on-line for under 24 hours.
The immediate response from people across Torbay, and the rest of the world after hitting international headlines with the press for being the ‘Waving Man Between Torquay & Paignton’.
Mayor Nick Bye, was not available to comment on the Christmas Light Switch on, to confirm weather this was a go ahead, for 2010, or 2011.
We spoke to the creator of the page, Kate said that she had only created the event to see if people would ‘Catch On’, Seeing so many people on the page now, she is purposing to submit the idea to Torbay Council later in the month. The idea from Kate, was ‘Just a Crazy Dream’, Kate admits that having some ‘dead end’ celebrity, or some old councillor do the Switch on just isn’t fun, so why not get the two happy things in Life, Moses Peter, - The waving man, and Christmas, then everyone’s happy, and maybe Moses will make a little speech, and ‘Wave at the end’.
With Christmas just a few months away, Shops have already started filling up with Christmas Cards, and trees. Plans for the usual Christmas Carnival in Torquay dates have been announced for November 20th, Starting at 4.30pm.
