In a low-key and socially distanced event, Folkestone Town Mayor Cllr Michelle Keutenius, along with ‘Santa’ switched on  the town’s christmas lights display outside the Town Hall on Wednesday evening.

 Sadly, the usual large event with singers and large crowds etc was not possible this year, but  the Mayor felt that she hoped the lights switch on would add a little sparkle and cheer to the town in the run up to the festivities.

It is hoped that next year will see the return of the full spectacular event.
