Christmas lights switch-on events in Burnham and Highbridge town centres are to be replaced with a joint virtual event streamed online this November.
The Town Council, which funds the Christmas lights for both towns, is working with the arts group Seed to create a community Christmas switch-on video, to be live streamed on 21st November.
Mayor Cllr Mike Facey says: “I am really excited to be part of the big Christmas lights switch-on video.”
”It has been a difficult year for everyone and the council is keen to mark the start of the festive season by safely involving local groups and residents old and young in this virtual event.”
“We are delighted to be working with the chambers of trade to support local businesses in the lead-up to the big switch-on and we encourage everyone to support our high streets this Christmas.”
