The Mayor of North Petherton, Councillor Alan Bradford, has announced that this year the cup that he donated will be presented to the house with the best Christmas lights display in the area. In previous years the award was made to the best dressed shop. “ I thought that the time had come for a change”, said Cllr Bradford. “There are so may beautiful displays of lights in our area now, and people clearly put such a lot of effort into celebrating this special time of year, that I thought it would be nice to recognise their efforts”. A panel of judges will be walking around the Council’s area in the run up to Christmas, but if anyone wants to make sure that their display is not missed they should contact the Town Clerk at
