The Christmas tree is a little larger than usual, and is in fact only 4ft shorter than the tree at the House of Commons.

The festive lights are funded by local businesses and the community, and are erected and maintained by the volunteer festive lights team.

Chairman Ian Clayton said: “I would like to thank everyone who has helped make the festive lights display possible again this year, the volunteers who gave up some much time and effort, Santa and Seahouses RNLI. and for all of those who provided financial support. The look on the children's faces made it all worthwhile.”
