Not only has there been a bumper entry for the annual poster competition sponsored by Jarrolds, but hundreds of festive wish-list labels have been created as decorations to celebrate the arrival of a 25ft Christmas tree next to the parish church.

Hughes electrical store, is again sponsoring 1st prize for the Christmas Lights raffle, with manager Simon Morton also funding the messages to Santa as well as supporting the Christmas lights volunteers creating them.

Much excitement and anticipation awaits the switch-on ceremony on December 3.

The festive occasion promises to be bigger and brighter than ever thanks to generous support from the Cromer Town Council, the Fireworks and Carnival funds, the Central England Co-op, sponsorship from local business and the coffee and cake ladies at the church.
