Burnham-On-Sea's Trinity Close Xmas lights attract crowds and funds

A Burnham-On-Sea cul-de-sac's stunning display of over 100,000 Christmas lights - dubbed 'Britain's most festive street' - has raised almost £1,500 for charity in its first week.

Crowds of visitors have been heading to the Trinity Close display and have dug deep for this year's charities, raising £1,457 in week one for BARB Search & Rescue and cancer support charity PETAL: The Christine Woodberry Memorial Trust.

Resident Roger Flower told "It has been a busy first week with many visitors coming to see this year's lights display."

"It's a superb display this year - it gets bigger and better every year and we were delighted to be fertured in the Daily Mail on Friday in an article about the best Christmas lights displays across the UK."

He added: "Extra traffic cones to restrict parking have been introduced this year at the suggestion of Somerset Highways, the Police and district council, and we are pleased to see these have been heeded."

"We are encouraging visitors to walk in and enjoy the lights without parking at Trinity Close or in Berrow Road."

Residents have decorated their homes, gardens and walls with colourful twinkling lights, and the display is lit each night from 4.30pm-10pm until early January.

Last Christmas, the five-week display in Trinity Close raised a record sum of £13,329 for charity and visitors are being encouraged to make donations in the collection box.
