Carols and cheer at lights switch-on

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - NEWS -

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.
