Christmas 2011

The festive season was suitably heralded with the annual switch-on of the Duddenhoe End Village Hall Christmas lights.

This auspicious occasion was attended by around 30 villagers who warmed themselves indoors with a glass of mulled wine, mince pies and sausage rolls before venturing out for the lighting up ceremony.

This year, we ran a draw to choose the young person who would throw the switch after the countdown. Fortuitously, Emily Schweiger drew the winning ticket on the occasion of her 12th birthday, so it was a double celebration for her.
