Of course Father Christmas was there to make sure everything went smoothly and to help Chatteris schoolgirl Zuzanna Brodzinska throw the switch to light up the town.

Zuzanna won this year's draw for the honour of turning the lights on which goes to a pupil in alternate years from Glebelands and Kingsfield schools. This year it was Kingsfield's turn.
