The winner of Weston’s Christmas light competition was ‘delighted’ to have her work displayed at Weston Museum.
Emily Fairhurst, aged 14, had her display picked by the town's mayor from hundreds of entries.
Weston Museum ran a competition to have a Christmas light made for the outside of the museum, in Burlington Street.
The town's mayor, Mark Canniford, judged the competition and met with Emily to congratulate her and see what she thought of the light.
The council invested in the decorations after a survey showed people would like better festive lights in the town centre.
