Burnham-On-Sea and Highbridge Xmas lights contest is underway

Burnham-On-Sea and Highbridge's annual Christmas lights competition gets underway this week - with residents being encouraged to illuminate their homes.

The Town Council is inviting residents across the two towns to enter the contest, which will be judged by a group of town councillors.

Cash prizes will be awarded to the best displays in several categories - best individual display (£25, cup and certificate), runner-up individual display (£10 and certificate), best group entry (shared shield and certficate) and best business window (£20, cup and certificate) and runner-up business (£10, cup and certificate).

Only those properties which have been specifically entered the competition will be judged and to enter, email the Town Council at by 12th December or write to Mrs Eileen Shaw, Burnham & Highbridge Town Council, The Old Courthouse, Jaycroft Road, Burnham, TA8 1LE.

Cups and shields for the winners will be engraved and held for a year. They will be presented at January's Town Council meeting on 9th January, 2012.
