PORTISHEAD'S Tree of Light is sparkling this year - in memory of loved ones at Christmas.

People have been flocking to sponsor a light on the festive fir tree, situated on top of the Somerset Hall, in memory of someone special.

All the money raised will go to towards the costs of maintaining and improving Portishead's Christmas lights.

Portishead Christmas Lights Committee spokesman Barry Randall said: "We've had a brilliant response. It's lovely that people want to pay tribute to their loved ones. The money is going to a really good cause and I just hope everyone gets pleasure from the Christmas tree lights."
