Mrs Barmby switched on the lights on the village Christmas tree tonight (Friday), also launching the Pennoyer's Beer and Gin Festival, which will be on all weekend.

Mrs Barmby, a nurse who who lives in Brooke, said: 'Someone asked me what the ingredients to a perfect Christmas were.

'I was going to say it's love and time, but now I think it's probably beer and gin.'

The festival is open Saturday from 11am to 11pm and Sunday from midday to 3pm.
