Town mayor Peter Human flicked the switch to light up the town centre for the Christmas season.

The afternoon was filled with festive cheer from live music, to tasty treats and of course the man himself, Father Christmas was there too with his friends from Wisbech Lions, offering children a photo opportunity and a chance to put in those all important present requests.
