North Walsham was packed with families enjoying the annual Christmas lights switch on from 2pm on Saturday, November 24.

'There were 17 stalls from food to charity, including an inflatable snow globe.'

He added: 'The switch on at 6pm was under the town clock, and done by Jade Paget -Woods, our carnival Funday Queen for the year and her daughter Rebecca.'
