THE Bromyard Wind Band began their Christmas programme with the annual Bromyard lights switch-on, playing popular Christmas songs and carols in Town Square, with singing by Bromyard Choral Society and joined by the crowd.

Two youngsters enjoyed helping with some music by playing the bells for a rendition of Jingle Bells!

Everyone was thankful for the lull in the rain, and the lights as usual looked magnificent.
