BURNHAM-on-Sea's famous Trinity Close Christmas lights display raised nearly £10,000 for two Somerset charities.

Thousands of visitors flocked to the cul-de-sac over the course of five weeks to see the street illuminated by 100,000 lights.

Dubbed Britain’s most festive street, the Trinity Close display raised £9,383 and the funds will be split between BARB Search and Rescue and PETAL: The Christine Woodbury Memorial Trust.

Roger Flower, a resident of Trinity Close said the display was a hit with residents. He said: "This year's display went really well and we raised £9,383 for two amazing charities.

"Thousands of people came out to see this year's display and it was lovely to see so many people come out and enjoy it."

Since its inception nearly two decades ago, the Trinity Close Christmas lights have helped raise more than £109,000 for local charities.

The stunning display is put on by Trinity Close residents every year and attracts thousands of visitors from across the country.

Roger said residents in Trinity Close have no plans to stop putting on the display and said they are looking forward to illuminating their homes again next year.

"We are doing the same again next year," Roger said.

"We have raised more than £109,000 since we have been doing this and we have been doing it for 19 years now.

"Our displays can change as we go out and buy new lights each year but some of them stay the same. "I am looking forward to next year and would like to thank everyone for their support."
