A stunning display of more than 100,000 twinkling lights in a Burnham cul-de-sac has raised more than £1,000 for local charities, in just its opening week.
Hundreds of people have flocked to the illuminations in Trinity Close, dubbed ‘Britain’s most festive street’, and deposited a whopping £1,078 into collection boxes around the close.
The lights have proven to be so popular traffic cones have been deployed. Residents are urging visitors to come on foot and not to park in Trinity Close or Berrow Road.
The annual display raises cash for Burnham’s BARB search and rescue, which operates the town’s rescue hovercrafts, and cancer-support charity PETAL: The Christine Woodberry Memorial Trust.
Last year, residents raised £10,427, which was split between the two charities.
