THE ‘most festive street in Britain’ has again brought the Christmas spirit to Burnham after its annual switch-on this week.
Large crowds turned out as the residents of Trinity Close turned on this year’s Christmas lights, accompanied by music from the Curtain Call school of performing arts.
More than 100,000 lights will adorn the houses of the street until January 5, with the street dubbed Britain’s most festive by some national newspapers in recent years.
Organisers use the impressive show to raise money for charity each year, with more than £5,000 going to good causes in 2014.
This year, they will put any money collected towards Petal: The Christine Woodberry Memorial Trust, Burnham Area Rescue Boat (BARB) and the Musgrove Maternity Unit Trust Fund.

Co-organiser Nick Gardner said: “We had a really strong turn-out to see the lights go on which was great to see.
“There’s more displays going on in nearby roads too which can only help.”
