Crowds flocked to The Strand on Friday (December 6) for the town council's Christmas event which featured lived music and a children's lantern parade.

The event also featured the switch-on of the Christmas tree lights and finished with a fireworks display illuminating the sky over the seafront.

Primary schools in the town were given the chance to decorate their own tree which was displayed at the event.

Speaking at the town council's December meeting on Monday (December 9), councillor Joy Whipps said the event was well attended.
