Christmas competition returns for another year
SOMERSET will be full of lights this festive season with 40 residents entering the second annual Christmas Lights Competition.
For the next three weeks, homes and businesses participating in the council initiative have been encouraged to have their displays turned on nightly until 10pm.
Somerset Regional Council mayor Graeme Lehmann said it was great to see so many people getting into the spirit of Christmas.
“Christmas light displays bring so much joy to people of all ages and it is fantastic to see residents and businesses getting on board,” Cr Lehmann said.
“It’s all about helping spread the joy of Christmas.
“A big thank you to all entrants who have taken the time to decorate their homes or businesses and are helping spread the Christmas cheer in Somerset.”
Weather permitting, judging of the properties will take place this week and winners will be announced on Monday, December 10.
“This is the second consecutive year that council has organised the competition and offered prizemoney to category winners,” Cr Lehmann said.
“There are some very impressive displays entered into the competition that are guaranteed to get you into the Christmas spirit.”
