Sponsor a bulb and go in raffle for Christmas lights switch on


You could be in with a chance to switch on Ampthill’s spectacular Christmas lights this festive season.

Visit the foyer of Waitrose in Bedford Street, Ampthill, on Sunday, November 15, between 11am and 2pm, when you can sponsor a light bulb at £1 each and be issued with a raffle ticket.

At 2pm the store manager will pick out the winner of the day’s prize and then draw the name of someone who will light up Ampthill’s colourful seasonal attraction.

The big switch on is Sunday, November 22 at 4.30pm following free live entertainment, a funfair and festive stalls from 2.30pm.

Father Christmas arrives at 3pm.

Just before the countdown the manager of the White Hart, Ampthill, will make a draw for the prize of a meal for four.
