'Tis the season to be jolly and resident of Chalfont St Giles gathered on Saturday, November 26, to switch on the village Christmas lights.

The festive fair also had local choirs, Christmas food and drink and fairground rides for the children.

Chalfont St Giles Infant School kicked off proceedings with a choral performance before the big light switch-on.

Father Christmas took a break from running his workshop to join the party and even recruited some local elves.
