Sheringham Christmas Light Switch on was a great success with a packed town and a thoroughly festive atmosphere. The day was started with the new Carnival initiative of a Christmas market near Tescos, which proved popular with people. The towns youngsters also turned out in an array of sparkling, twinkling and brightly lit scooters, params and bikes to parade into town to start the proceedings off. With entertainment provided by the Little Theatre, Sheringham Primary and Nursery school, The Salvation Army it was very much a whole community event, enjoyed by everyone. Town Clerk Denise Medler who has served this town for a long time switched the lights on and said it was a great honour to do so. Reindeers and Santa completed what was a great event.

With many traders staying open to add to the festive spirit, the town looked splendid. Chamber of Trade Chairman Andrew Munden presented the prizes of the Best Christmas Window Competition, which had been judged by Rob Youngs, Economic Development Officer for North Norfolk District Council. The three winners of the competition were ( in no particular order) Creativity, Heirloom and Miss Madeleine’s.

Once again our hardworking Carnival Association and it’s band of dedicated volunteers have produced another great event for Sheringham. This is their last event of 2018 and Sheringham Town Council would like to take this opportunity to thank all of them for the huge contribution they make to ensuring Sheringham is the unique and vibrant town that it is for residents and visitors.

Carnival volunteers don’t have much of a rest though as they are back on the first of December for the New Years Day Dip! Will we see you there?  See more information on the Carnival (official) Fb  page.
