Doddington lit up last month (November 25) as the Christmas lights were officially switched on – hundreds of locals came out to see the town burst with colour.

Amongst the excitement of the switch on, a Funfair, Santa’s Grotto and Craft Fair was also on offer – along with food and refreshments provided by the George pub.

A spokesman said: “It’s been by far the busiest year we have ever had and today would not have been possible without the hard work and dedication of our committee & volunteers.

“It also wouldn’t have been possible without our sponsors, donators and the support of the residents of our amazing village, without you all we wouldn’t have achieved what we did this year.”

The crowds were entertained by live music from Vicki Mason’s Future stars Theatre as they sang traditional Christmas songs.
