Burnham-On-Sea's Trinity Rise bursts into festive colour!

A Burnham-On-Sea cul-de-sac whose impressive display of Christmas lights was featured on national TV last year has burst into festive colour again this week as residents lit up their homes.

Crowds of onlookers watched the eight Trinity Rise homes illuminate their decorations on Friday night (December 1st) when residents also held a Christmas street party.

The homes are decorated top to bottom in thousands of lights, as shown here, and last year gained national attention when they were featured on GMTV.

"We've got a really special display again this year," organiser Christine Woodbery told "This is our ninth year and we have a total of eight homes taking part, which is the most ever. This year's lights really are something special!"

The lights are on display every night from 4pm until January 6th. Last year, a huge £4,000 was raised for charity and organisers hope similar amount will be raised for this year's beneficiaries: BIBIC, BARB and the Somerset Children's Hospice.
