Road closures and packed programme bring out crowds for Church Stretton's Christmas lights switch-on
More than 1,000 people turned out in a Shropshire town for a range of events during its Christmas lights switch-on, it has been estimated.
Two of the main streets in Church Stretton - High Street and Sandford Avenue - were closed to give priority to sleighs over cars for the events on Saturday.
It was the first time for a while that roads have been closed for the events and it seems the townsfolk responded in droves.
An array of events were put on for the town and including a street fair, Christmas Market and entertainment.
