A street in Weston enjoyed their Christmas light switch-on event Sunday.

People of Chesham Road North synchronize their Christmas lights in the community event. 

After the pandemic, homeowners formed a Chesham Road Facebook community page to organise the launch party.

Resident Daniel Jackson said he was amazed by the size of crowds that turned up to the event. 

He said: "Our annual light switch-on was pretty fantastic.

"It felt like half of Weston turned up, or at least a couple of hundred.

"Luckily we have some talented people in our street who can help to organise these things.
