Christmas Tree Lights Switched On

Houghton Regis' Christmas Tree was lit up on Saturday 5th December 2015 following a Carol Service at All Saints Parish Church.

As an innovation a few stalls were added to Bedford Square for a "Dickensian Shopping" experience, following the switch on.

Mayor Rob Shimmin, and his wife, Babs switch on the lights. Rob has been a Town Councillor for Houghton Hall Ward since May 2015. Prior to that he was a councillor for Parkside Ward. His charities this year include raising funds for All Saints Parish Church Fund.

The Round Table, with Santa and his Sleigh was at the event to give the children a special early treat.

Cllr Tracey McMahon, never misses an opportunity to promote another event!
