We all know that Christmas is going to be very different this year, but Trowbridge has still managed to enter into the spirit by hosting its traditional Christmas Lights Switch-On, however in a virtual way . . .

The big yellow button was pressed by Town Crier Trevor Heeks (unbelievably, his first time in almost 40 years in his role), illuminating the town park and the streets around the town centre, not forgetting the magnificent Christmas tree in its usual position in Fore Street . . . We’re just sorry that you all couldn’t be there this year. However, you can relive the occasion (again and again if you like!), as we’ve made a video so no-one has to miss out – you’ll be able to watch it by clicking this link.

Continuing the Christmas theme (as one does this time of year . . .), have you heard about Window Wanderland, which is lighting up the town by encouraging homes and businesses to decorate or illuminate their windows – why not wrap up warm, and take a seasonal stroll and enjoy this wonderful way of marking and celebrating the festive season?
