A VIRTUAL Christmas lights switch-on event will be held tomorrow by Burnham and Highbridge Town Council.

The event will be streamed live on the town council website at 7pm on Saturday (November 21).

Due to the coronavirus pandemic social distancing restrictions and Government guidelines are in place meaning people are unable to get out and about and celebrate in the usual way.

To enable people to celebrate the town council has worked with Seed to bring a virtual Christmas lights switch-on event to residents.

The council said the aim of this year’s Christmas lights switch-on has been to invite the community to get involved by sharing their short Christmas films featuring Seed’s GlowHome lanterns.

Cllr Mike Facey, mayor of Burnham and Highbridge, said: “We hope you will join us online at 7pm Saturday to watch the Christmas lights switch-on film featuring friends and neighbours as we celebrate the festive season”.
