Alfreton’s Christmas lights are being switched on tomorrow (Saturday, November 26) and there’s going to be a huge celebration to mark the occasion.

We think it’s the perfect opportunity for us to launch our first picture competition.

We would like you to send us your pictures from the Christmas light switch on – it could be a family group shot or a snap of Santa himself.

Whatever picture you enter, please make sure you have permission from anyone pictured before sharing with us because all submitted pictures will be published online.

You can send the pictures via our Facebook page or email them to

The deadline for sending the pictures is 12pm on Monday (November 28).

We will publish all of the pictures in a gallery on our website that afternoon before choosing a winning picture.

The winning picture will be announced on our website and social media channels on Tuesday (November 29).

The winner will receive a £25 Amazon gift card.

Good luck!
