Judging of Burnham-On-Sea's Christmas lights competition starts

Judging of Burnham and Highbridge's official Christmas lights competition got underway last night (Tuesday).

Town councillors Pat Burge, Tom Nicholls and Dennis Davey, have the job of assessing the best decorated homes and businesses across the two towns this week.

And they started at Burnham's Trinity Close on Tuesday evening which has again attracted national media attention with its stunning display of more than 100,000 lights.

The results of the competition, which is run by Burnham and Highbridge Town Council, will be announced on during the next few days.

Tom told "We have been impressed by the quality of the entires in this year's competition. There were some very good new entries and the regular competitors improved on their already high standard from previous years."

"The only disappointment was that there weren't more entires, especially given the quality of the displays we saw on some properties that had not entered the competition."

Cash prizes are awarded for the best displays in several categories in each town - best individual display (£25, cup and certificate), runner-up individual display (£10 and certificate), best group entry (shared shield and certificates).

There is also a prize for the best business window (£20, cup and certificate) and runner-up business (£10, cup and certificate). The prizes will be presented at a council meeting in January.
