Work has started on this year’s Christmas lights display in Portishead.

A group of volunteers were in High Street during the early hours of Sunday to replace LED string lights in trees.

Lights will also be installed on traffic islands in Wyndham Way and West Hill Triangle.

The committee has decided on a red, white and blue theme to mark 100 years since the end of World War One.

Tessa Lewis, committee secretary, thanked organisations which back the group.

She said: “Thanks to the generous support of Portishead Town Council, main sponsor Future Bathrooms and other sponsors Halliday’s Funeral Directors and Portishead Motorcare, Portishead Christmas Lights has purchased more than a kilometre of LED light strings to decorate trees around the town this year.”
