Over the next few weeks we will be searching for the best Christmas lights in South Holland.
We will be asking you, our readers, to send in short videos of your displays and our reporters will also be out and about recording the best-lit homes.
And when we’ve crowned the winning house, the occupants will win some wonderful prizes donated by the competition sponsors.
First prize will be a £100 voucher to spend at Baytree Nurseries Garden Centre in Weston and a £150 Fortnum and Mason classic Christmas hamper provided by Bakkavor Spalding.
The house judged the second best will receive a £50 gift card from Sainsbury’s in Holland Market, Spalding and a £50 voucher from Spalding Lifestyle in Pinchbeck.
And the third prize will be a £25 voucher from Hawkins Home Hardware in Holbeach and a £50 Truly Irresistable hamper from the Anglia Co-operative Travel branch at Spalding, the foodstores at Market Deeping and Bourne and RJ Scholes Funeral Service at Bourne and Deeping St James.
The modern phenomenom of lighting up your home has really caught on in recent years.Many do it to simply cheer up their street. Others are annual extravaganzas which raise money for charity.
We want you to send us a short video of your house lit up. We will publish videos on our website – spaldingtoday.co.uk – as they come in. Closing date is Friday, December 20 and the winners will be announced in our special Boxing Day edition of the Spalding Guardian on December 26.
Send your videos to us at firstname.lastname@example.org and please include your name, address and daytime contact number.
Please keep videos to a maximum of 15 seconds, keep the camera as still as possible while recording and make sure you show the front of the house in all its glory.
