Anyone who lives or works in Bedlington could be in the running to switch on this year’s Christmas lights.

Local charity Leading Link, working with West Bedlington Town Council, is organising this year’s Christmas extravaganza on Thursday, December 5, and it is keen to promote a real community celebration for the event.

The switch-on will have live entertainment, local Christmas enterprise stalls, hot food and drink and a chance to visit Santa’s Grotto.

Jonny Hall, assistant manager of Leading Link, said: “We are giving Bedlington a real community Christmas celebration this year so it is only right that the community decides who the star of the show is.”

To nominate someone, fill in the form at or call (01670) 820088.

Nominations close on November 7.
