Lights switch-on did not disappoint

So on the Friday afternoon Ros (my consort) and I hit the street for Sheringham's Christmas lights switch-on suitably chained and up for anything.

We were not disappointed! Cold it may have been but the people were there in droves led by those super kiddies (and older) on their decorated bikes and costumes.

Thanks to Paul Marriots efforts on the mic things just zoomed along.

That great bunch of volunteers had done their stuff with the lights, bless them, and with the usual help from the Salvation Army band it heralded Christmas for Sheringham.

Mark Hill as mayor gave his speech, not too long thank you Mark, and off we went.

I patrolled the shops and pubs (no surprise there then!) and welcomed as many as possible.

The feedback was lovely, so complimentary to the town. Many had come from London for the weekend, and as usual a super bunch of folk from Norwich.

I was so proud that Sheringham is my home town and marvellously supported by everyone.

Thank you Norfolk for creating a night to remember.

Somewhere along the way I ended up with Rudolf antlers and a red nose but who cares?

RICHARD SHEPHERD,

North Norfolk District Council chairman
