Christmas lights switched on in Watton
Town mayor Michael Wassell pressed the button to light up Watton with festive cheer on Sunday.
The town has a 20ft tree and white lights strung across the shops and the switch-on came at the end of an afternoon which included a market with about 20 stalls and also live entertainment plus the ever popular Santa's grotto.
Even though it was cold, it stayed dry and rain which fell elsewhere in Norfolk stayed away from Watton.
Mr Wassell said: 'It went very well and people enjoyed themselves and it was good to see the community coming together. Well done to the people who worked very hard to make it happen.'
He said there was generally an upbeat feeling in Watton in the run up to Christmas.
