Children have been urged to show off their creative side for a chance to switch on this year’s Christmas lights in Maldon.

The winner of Maldon Town Council’s design a Christmas lantern competition, which is open to four to 11-year-olds, will turn on the illuminations outside All Saint’s Church, in High Street, on December 1.

All entries must be capable of holding a battery operated tea light. Naked Flame Candles, in High Street, is giving away a limited number of the lights for the competition.
