IN PICTURES: Christmas comes to Bridgwater in style with lights, fireworks and squibbing

BRIDGWATER celebrated the turning on of the Christmas lights in spectacular fashion yesterday.

From 10am the town centre was bustling as more than 40 stalls offered unique festive gifts, a wide variety of foods and craft beverages.

There were fairground rides, fireworks and as usual Father Christmas was a big attraction.

The lights were switched on at 6pm without hitch by Cllr Alan Bradford, chairman of Sedgemoor District Council, and Bridgwater Mayor Cllr Leigh Redman.

A spectacular display of squibbing on the town bridge rounded of the official proceedings.

Our photographer Jeff Searle was there to catch all the action.
