The centre of Clare was throbbing with people last Friday (November 23) as the community gathered to celebrate its Christmas light switch on.

The smell of hotdogs and mulled wine permeated the night-time air as the crowds built up in Market Hill ready for the moment when the switch was flicked by special guest, the Mayor of St Edmundsbury, Cllr Tim Marks.

In keeping with the recent traditions of Clare’s festive event, a bagpipe player led a procession, largely made up of children carrying free glow sticks, from outside Hurst’s Bakery in High Street down to Market Hill via Bucks Lane in time for the crucial moment.
