A market town is celebrating another successful festive fair.
The Christmas lights switch-on in Watton was the culmination of an afternoon of entertainment including a Santa’s Grotto, funfair rides and carol singing on the High Street.
There were also performances from the Dereham Town Band and City of Norwich Pipe Band.
Town mayor Beryl Bunning said: “It was absolutely fantastic. The town was packed and the entertainers were great. Father Christmas had a queue to see him as long as your arm, and there was a great atmosphere.”
Members of Watton Town Council and volunteers ran a tombola stall which collected £346.50. The money will be split between the Charlotte Harvey Trust and Queen’s Hall.
