BRIDGWATER NEWS: Countdown to Christmas begins
HUNDREDS of people gathered in Bridgwater town centre on Friday (November 24, 2017) evening for the official switching-on of the Christmas lights.
Civic dignitaries were joined by guests and the townspeople to kick-off the official countdown to the festive season.
Bridgwater Mayor, Cllr Graham Granter, and the chairman of Sedgemoor District Council, Cllr Mike Cresswell, were on hand to help flick the switch along with young Hayden Burland to illuminate the town in readiness for Christmas.
They were joined by the main man himself, Father Christmas, who arrived in traditional style.
