St Michael’s Hospice Community Fundraiser Laura Sully said: “Everyone that takes part in the annual Westfield Lights display, in aid of St Michael’s Hospice are amazing.

“We are so grateful to them for displaying such a stunning sight for all to see.

Many families have now made going to see the village lights in December part of their Christmas tradition and long may it continue.
