THE people of Ashbourne have put on a dazzling display of Christmas lights this year and News Telegraph photographers have been out snapping some of their favourite displays in and around the town.
As the town council continues to invest in festive lights for the town centre, and its retailers are putting on bigger and better displays each year, the town’s Mayor has praised the residents of the town for helping to add to the Christmas spirit.
Councillor Steve Bull said: “It’s nice to see the different households putting on such impressive displays year on year.
“I’ve just been out with the Santa float and the amount of houses that we saw all done up looks absolutely wonderful.
“It’s nice and I think it adds to the atmosphere, and makes everywhere look Christmasy, especially for the children of the town.
“I admire the work and effort people have gone to.
“The retailers and the town council go to a lot of trouble to make everywhere look good so it really helps when people make their own homes look nice.”
