jezza, i browse with mozilla I figure you do too by your response. IE does show the images but Mozilla needs the plugin to view it. I am not a fan of IE.

Christ Jezza, you take care up on that roof, we don't wont to hear you've fallen off now, but the lights look really great, what sort of sums of money do you raise by doing that :?: the reason I said the above is, nearly everyone who dose things to raise money for charity ends up in hospital costing 1000's to be made better again, we see them all the time, dam fools who jump from planes and charity footy matches, so I hope you use ropes etc :?: :?: keep up the good work, I am glad I don't have to pay your electric bill :lol: :lol: :lol:

lights are amazing icon_thumleft deb loves it,drags me round for miles looking at places like those. our local council council have put the mockers on a nearby street where residents used to sort of compete,saying they need health and safety or fire certificates of some sort.would cost them all loads so they dont bother now icon_thumbdown icon_thumbdown

it is indeed nick. the whole street took part,featured on gmtv one year.one or two ignore the warnings and put a few up still but nothing like what was. real shame as there are a few hard up families down there that took pride in being able to compete with some of the more well off areas round here.burnham on sea is a place we go sometimes,they have charity boxes nailed to walls etc so why cant nailsea? not looking for replies,just summizing.(if thats the right word?)

Brilliant Delboy. Hats off to you icon_thumright Shame you're so far a way or we'd be round to have a look.

Darren, we had a local council that banned the word Christmas, replaceing it with seasons greetings. There were no town centre decorations to combat climate change, and schools were not allowed to have Christmas trees or classroom decorations. :roll:

They suffered a crushing defeat in the Council elections. :wink:
Best regards
Dave

Made my last post after briefly looking at the website and thinking you had a lot of lights... but having looked through the Gallery it is a large event, with what looks like a huge turn out, and huge cheques to the organisations at the end.

Derek,

Looking at the main lights photo I am guessing you are the house in the centre. That Cordy/palm is crying out for rope lights to be wrapped up it's trunks in spirals. I have seen that done in Madeira and it was rather efective (I can't find a phot right now to demonstrate).

I dread to think what your winter 'lecky bill is! :shock:
