Daz­zling dis­play a wor­thy win­ner

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - Housing Report -

The win­ner of the Ken­tish Ex­press Christ­mas Lights Com­pe­ti­tion has been cho­sen.

Great- grand­fa­ther Peter Reeves’ im­pres­sive dis­play in Wot­ton Road wowed the judges.

Re­tired Mr Reeves, 68, says it takes ‘quite a lot of lights’ to achieve the look, which in­cludes shoot­ing stars, rein­deer, an arch and sev­eral Fa­ther Christ­mases.

He said: “I’ve been putting the lights up for the last 10 years. A lot of peo­ple leav­ing work say how good they are. Plus the grand­chil­dren like them.

“I’m old- fash­ioned, so we al­ways put them up 12 days be­fore Christ­mas, and take them down 12 days af­ter.”

The run­ner-up spot goes to Adam Smith, of Mus­grove, whose front lawn was cov­ered in il­lu­mi­nated fig­ures.

Big thanks to ev­ery sin­gle one of you who en­tered.
