Nicholls added: "We have been impressed by the entries this
year, which were up on last year but there are a lot more beautifully
decorated homes that do not register for the competition. If you
know a neighbour or a friend who enjoys decorating their residence
at Christmas why not suggest they join in the Town Council competition
