One villager hopes to light up the lives of his neighbours with his display of festive illuminations.

Peter Roffe, 81, of West End, Langtoft, has spent the last few weeks setting up his annual display of Christmas lights.

Peter began with a few fixtures more than two decades ago but has added more each year to create a striking display.

He will hold an official switch-on on Wednesday and Langtoft residents are already excited about the event.

Peter said: “I love doing it. It’s a big excitement when it is switched on.

“I get excellent reactions from neighbours.”

Every year Peter raises money for Sue Ryder, the charity that cared for his late wife who died in 2001.
