Jemma switches on rotary tree lights

A TREE of light was illuminated in Clevedon during a festive ceremony on Saturday.

The Rotary Club of Clevedon has put up the tree in the foyer of the town’s Baptist church to enable people to place stars on it in memory of a lost loved one in return for donations to charity.

BBC weather presenter Jemma Cooper flicked the switch to turn on the lights.
