Carols and cheer at lights switch-on
THE streets of Gerrards Cross were packed with festive fun-seekers as crowds gathered for the annual Christmas Fair and switching on of the lights.
There was plenty to entertain during the event, with music from the Accord Choir, which took up residence outside Tesco, the Amersham A Cappella Choir, which entertained at Chewton Rose, and, of course, the crowd itself with rousing renditions of Christmas carols.
Roasted chestnuts and mulled wine went down well with the crowd and youngsters enjoyed all the fun of the fair with many rides on offer.
Charities used the event to raise funds for good causes and Father Christmas took advance orders for the big day.
The Christmas lights were switched on by Rotarian John Hedley and pupils from St Mary’s School.
