TV face to switch on town lights

CHRISTMAS lights in Clevedon’s town centre will be switched on by a familiar face from the world of TV.

Daphne Fowler, who has featured on the BBC quiz show Eggheads for nine years, will press the button in Queens Square at 5pm on December 1 to illuminate the town with festive cheer.

The lights in the town centre have been funded by the community group Clevedon Pride, whose members have raised almost �9,000 toward them, and Clevedon Town Council.

The switch-on will take place during Clevedon Pride’s Christmas fair to held in the square from 12.30-6pm.

This will be the fourth year the voluntary group has held a Christmas fair and this year it will have even more stalls and attractions.
