The 12 houses around the Wood Avens Way roundabout have been lit up for the tenth year, as part of a drive to raise hundreds of pounds for local causes.

This year they will be raising cash for Nelson's Journey, a Norfolk-based charity which helps young people with bereavement.

Claire Melton, one of the homeowners, said: 'It started before I moved in seven years ago and it has just grown since then.

'It keeps getting bigger every year and we hope to raise as much money as we can for charity.'

She said, on average, they raise about £300 each year - but hope to top the total this Christmas.

Donations can be put in a bucket at the lights, which are switched on from about 4pm each day.
