Westgate-on-sea prepares for Winter Wonderland

Santa returns to Westgate-on-sea for the 12th anniversary Christmas fayre light switch on.

The event, which will take place on 2nd of December on Station Road, will play host to a large Christmas street market along with live acts and a very special visit from Father Christmas.

The festivities, which have been running for the past 12 years, will kick off at 11:00am with the annual light switch on set for 4:30pm.

The event Committee have revealed that instead of opting for a celebrity to turn on the lights, they have asked the town to vote for their local hero.

Resident Ruth Shilling has taken the winning spot. She has been described as ‘loved by many’ and ‘well known in Westgate’.
