Sutton Bridge residents can look forward to a more festive appearance in the village after parish councillors agreed to a new Christmas lighting for 2014.

The cost of the scheme is expected to be less than £10,000 but agreement is subject to the council having sufficient cash to fund new lighting.

At a council meeting on Tuesday, Spalding and District Chamber of Commerce president Phil Scarlett said the group was willing to help with the scheme after the success of new Christmas lighting in Spalding for 2012.

In a report to the council, Mr Scarlett said: “Sutton Bridge looked sad over the festive period (in 2012), with the only clue that it was Christmas being the lit tree outside St Matthew’s Church.”

A proposal to start the scheme this year was voted down by councillors because of other projects in the village they are committed to.
