He added: ““Yet again the Christmas lights will be a magnificent beacon to shoppers, but this year we are hoping that everyone will get in to the spirit and light up their shop windows.

“We are also hoping the private individuals who have their homes above the shops will join in as well so that Honiton shines brightly for all to see.

“We are eternally grateful to all our sponsors and Honiton Town Council for their support at this busy time of year. Let’s make Honiton a truly magical Christmas shopping destination.
