Delight as Morecambe fundraisers announce return of popular home Christmas lights show

Ian Clifton

A couple have announced the return of a popular fundraising Christmas lights show at their home - saying it will be on a smaller scale to previous years.

Ian and Diane Clifton ran the Lincoln Close Illuminations for more than three decades, raising more than £72,000 for charity.

They announced earlier this year that they were ending the large-scale illuminations at their Westgate home after 32 years, but would still light up their house in a limited way for people to visit.

The annual Lincoln Close Illuminations, complete with its own switch on event, was visited by huge crowds of local people over that time.

Here's how the Illuminations looked in the past. 

On Thursday, a post on the Lincoln Close Illuminations Facebook page said: "We are at it again but in a limited way but we think you will enjoy the light experience.

"The lights will shine from 4pm to 10pm each evening for the festive season.

"All monies collected will be forwarded to Derian House. Anyone wishing to donate from away would you please make your cheques payable to Derian House Childrens Hospice.

"Ian would like to thank the back up boys for all their support and says thanks a million."

Supporters of the Lincoln Close Illuminations, posting on the Facebook page, were delighted at the news, one saying it was a "lovely surprise" and another said "I can't wait to go!"
