Earlier this evening, along with my colleagues, Cllr Bruce Berry and Cllr Steve Williams (we are pictured above) and about 100 others I went along to the switch on of the Amberley Avenue Christmas lights.
This event is organised by a group of local residents who live in the Close and has grown year on year and has reached many people who come from far and wide to witness this magnificent spectacle.
As well as bringing joy and happiness to many it also raises money for a great cause, Claire House. The lights are on from around 4:30pm until very late every night throughout the Christmas and New Year period and I would urge people to take the kids, not forgetting the letter for Santa and if you are really lucky Santa may take some time out of his very busy schedule to make a surprise appearance.
Happy Christmas everyone…..
