Householders across North Devon have been doing their best to spread a little early Christmas cheer and dispel some of the gloom of lockdown and tier restrictions.

Last week we asked you to send in pictures following The Great Big Light Switch On organised by Lisa Mackenzie, but that was not the only light show in town.

Clinton Road resident Nicola Kennaugh got in touch to tell us about her Light Up for Lockdown campaign, which she has been running since the beginning of November, calling on people to add a little early festive cheer during the pandemic.

Around 20 fellow residents in Nicola’s road have also put up lights on their own houses, in her words ‘like Blackpool Illuminations’.

In fact, families have even been making evening visits to Clinton Road to see the lights and the Light Up for Lockdown movement is proving popular around the country and in Instagram.

If you keep sending them, we’ll keep featuring them – email your Christmas lights pictures to newsdesk@northdevongazette.co.uk .
