Weston Christmas Light Display 2019 is revealed - and it’s bigger and better than ever!
After months, weeks, days and hours preparing and planning this year’s Weston Christmas Light Display, it has finally been revealed.
The big switch on took place on Sunday 1st December and once again Graham Witter has transformed his family home into a magical Winter Wonderland to raise money for The Donna Louise Hospice.
This is the seventh year that Carters Green Farm in Weston has been decorated with tens of thousands of twinkling lights and decorations by Graham Witter and his family, in memory of Graham’s late sister Jessica.
Graham said “I’m so pleased with the 2019 display, it simply looks stunning. I have added several new animated silhouettes to the garden village scene, added more lights to the house and have designed my own stunning Christmas Tree, which is a brand-new feature this year. It’s always a bit nerve-wracking when we do the big switch-on, but I’m delighted that everything went well. To have seen so many happy faces enjoying the display already makes the months of planning and erecting the display worthwhile.”
Everyone across our community is welcome to visit the Weston Christmas Light Display this December, where they’ll be able to visit Santa’s Grotto, indulge in a #festiveicecream and have a #sleighselfie with Santa, not forgetting having photo’s at the magnificent light display.
Graham added, “I hope the local community will come along to enjoy this year’s light spectacular, it doesn’t cost anything to visit, we just ask for a donation to our chosen charity, The Donna Louise Hospice, a place which is close to mine and my family’s hearts”
Graham first started the display six years ago to raise money for The Donna Louise where his sister received respite care. In that time he’s raised an incredible £92,310 to help local children and young people with life-limiting conditions, who are supported by the Hospice.
He added, “I’m really hoping to pass the £100,000 fundraising milestone this year – that would be a massive achievement. I feel so proud to continue this festive fundraiser in Jessica’s memory and know she would have laughed and smiled at all these magical lights and decorations.”
The Weston Christmas Light Display will shine bright every evening until 28th December, from 6.15pm – 9pm, at Carters Green Farm, Jack Lane, Weston. Santa will visit every Friday, Saturday, Sunday evening and each night the last few days before Christmas. Everyone’s welcome!
