The festive spirit was alive and well in Doddington when the Christmas lights were switched on amid stalls, fun fair rides and music.
The annual switch on took place in the village with a packed turn out making the event its usual success story.
David Curtis, chairman of the Christmas Lights Committee, said: “We had a good crowd and a great atmosphere I’m very happy with who it went.
“There were more than 40 stalls from far and wide. Some old, some new sellers.
“We are only a small village but we do well to have a turn out and event like this.”

An envelope collection in the weeks leading up to the switch on helps raise funds, and, along with money made on the night, it is all ploughed back into ensuring the lights are kept updated.
This year there was an inflatable grotto with a chance for youngsters to have their photo taken with Santa.
