Record total of £11,678 raised by Burnham's Trinity Close Xmas lights

A grand total of £11,678 was raised for charity by the residents of a Burnham-On-Sea cul-de-sac whose sparkling display of over 100,000 twinkling Christmas lights has been dubbed 'Britain's most festive street'.

As the Trinity Close lights come down after a busy five week festive season, the residents say they are delighted with the record amount raised.

Crowds of visitors flocked to see the sparkling display, raising cash for PETAL: The Christine Woodberry Memorial Trust and the Friends of Burnham Hospital.

Resident Nick Gardner, who is one of the residents who organises the display, told "It was an exceptionally good festive season and we are all very pleased with the final sum."

"To raise £11,688 for charity over the five weeks is incredible - simply superb - and a big thank you goes from us all to those who came along and supported us."

"The wet weather provided us with a few extra challenges, creating several electrical shorts, but it didn't deter the visitors."
