Hungerford's Christmas is virtually here

Hungerford twinkled into Christmas this evening with a virtual ceremony for the town's lights switch on. 

The coronavirus pandemic has meant that the town's popular lights switch-on and extravaganza could not be held this year. 

But the town council and community joined online to wish everyone a Merry Christmas tonight (Sunday). 

Town mayor Helen Simpson said: "Sadly we were unable to bring you the Christmas lights switch-on event this year that we know you love to support. But we've joined forces with a few of our community friends to bring you a fun festive video."
