The light festival at St Andrew's Church is coming back from 3pm to 6pm on Saturday, December 7 and Sunday, December 8.

According to organisers, the first weekend went "very well" and 120 homemade mince pies and glasses of mulled wine were sold.

A spokesman said: "Events include a community carol concert at 4pm on the Sunday.
