Neighbours on a North Staffordshire road have been spreading some festive cheer after a tough year.
Residents of Gedney Grove in Westbury Park, Newcastle, went to the effort of putting up several light displays up and down their street.
It even features a very agile Santa Claus climbing a street lamp!
Residents say they wanted to maintain a sense of normality throughout the festive season and plan to do the same thing for many years to come.
They even have plans to use the event to raise money for charity in future years.
One resident, Adam Capper, said that the local community just wanted to ‘cheer people up’.
“We’ve had a lot of interest on our community Facebook pages and lots of people have been down to have a look at the lights,” said dad-of-three Adam.
“We are just testing the water really to see how it goes and how many people join in, because next year we’d like to do it even bigger and better and raise some money for charity, too.
“We just wanted to cheer people up and spread a bit of positivity.
“We’ve had fire pits outside too where the children can get involved and roast marshmallows. It’s been a big community effort.”
Christmas will be a different experience this year, so Adam and his neighbours wanted to maintain some festive cheer ahead of what could be a tough time for many.
He said: “This Christmas will be different for everyone, but we wanted to do something lighthearted to give people a sense of normality.
“We haven’t always been such a tight knit street. It all started with the first lockdown when we had a big street party for VE Day.
“We looked out for each other and the community just became closer because of Covid.”
