The Christmas light switch on will be taking place on December 1 2018 at 4.30pm, with road closures in place from 12 noon.

There is always a queue of eager children waiting to visit Santa in his grotto, and this year it will be at Thomas Paynes.

Funds raised are given to local good causes.

In St Peter & St Paul’s Parish Church the annual Christmas Tree Festival is always a very popular attraction, and their tasty refreshments go down a treat too.
