The Wood Avens Way round-about has be illuminated at Christmas for the past 13 years.

Resident Claire Melton said: 'It has been growing bigger every year. It started with just a few neighbours putting up their lights but it grew into a natural competition to see who could have the biggest and best ones.'

Now all 13 houses put on the light show from Sunday, November 26, till January 2.

The display is raising money for charity with funds being split between Pact Animal Sanctuary and Wymondham Dementia Support Group.

Last year the residents raised £1,200 and are hoping to match that this year.

Mrs Melton added: 'Peter Williams will be coming along on Christmas Eve to play Christmas music and carols on his organ form 5.15 to 7.15pm.'
