Christmas houses this year.

Reporter Jonathan White, Wistaston
 
I enjoy the Christmas lights in the Crewe and Nantwich town centres, but I also really enjoy the over-the-top Christmas lights and decorations (including the occasional inflatable decoration) that some local homeowners setup each year. Their electricity bills must be sky high, but they never fail to bring a smile to my face!
 
My favourites so far in Crewe are located in Ravenscroft Road, Alton Street, Salisbury Avenue and Vincent Street.
 
My favourites so far in Wistaston are in Lear Drive and Westfield Drive.
 
My favourites so far in Nantwich are in Cope Avenue, Davenport Avenue and Barony Road.
 
There was also a Christmas car this year after Michael Cope from Crewe decorated his BMW with 1,000 lights!
 
My most favourite Christmas house this year is located in Alton Street (Queens Park end) in Crewe. The owner(s) have decorated their house frontage in a wide selection of inflatables, lights and Christmas scenes. For several years running they have clearly spent a lot of time and effort in choosing and setting up their displays.
 
I must also give a special mention to the ‘Weston Christmas Light Display’, which takes place at Carters Green Farm, Jack Lane, Weston, near Crewe every day in December until Monday 28th December 2015 (6:15pm to 9:00pm). Plus, every Friday, Saturday and Sunday evening and the last few days before Christmas, Santa will take time off from his busy schedule to visit the farm and sit in his sleigh. For the third year running money is being raised for The Donna Louise Children's Hospice http://www.donnalouisetrust.org/ . Last year an incredible £5,720 was raised for the charity and the money was used to help fund additional nursing staff and their training. To visit the display if heading from Crewe turn right off Weston Road (just after Crewe Hall) into Main Road towards Weston, then left into Jack Lane. If heading from Weston go over the A500 bypass bridge on Main Road and turn right in Jack Lane. From both directions look out for the ‘Charity Christmas Light Display 6.15-9pm’ arrow signs at the end of Jack Lane. https://www.facebook.com/westonlightdisplay
