With Christmas just over a month away, one north Norfolk town has become the latest to switch on its festive lights and get into the spirit of Christmas.

Sheringham held its annual Christmas lights switch-on on Friday, which also featured a snow machine, bubble machine as well as the opportunity to interact with some actual reindeer.

The lights were switched on by Sheringham Town Council clerk Denise Medler to honour her years of service on the town council.

Stuart McClean, chairman of the Sheringham Carnival Committee, also helps to organise the switch-on and said: “It went very well. The lights are on the three main streets in town and are all set off from the clock in town.

“We’ve got the timing down to a tee now, they all go off at the same time. It looks spectacular as you drive down to Sheringham.”
