AN ELF hunt has started and the Christmas lights are on in Lees as the festive season gets well underway.
At the annual switch-on event, there were carols around the Christmas tree before special guest Santa turned on the lights to declare the festive season officially started.
Meanwhile businesses up and down the high street are bringing Christmas cheer with decorative and eye-catching window displays.
And an elf hunt is underway around Springhead, Lees and Grotton to find the cheeky elves hiding in the shop windows.
The competition runs until 4pm on Sunday, December 16 and entry forms are available from local participating businesses with an elf sticker and colouring competition. There are fantastic prizes for the winners.
