"It was absolutely fantastic and it was jam-packed," she said.

"There was a sea of people and it was amazing to see how many were there.

"We've had hundreds of positive comments about much they enjoyed it and how it was the best one yet.

"One woman who was running a craft stall said she had completely sold out by two o'clock in the afternoon.

"An awful lot of people came out and gave up their time to make it a really great success.

"We had a local haulier give us one of his curtain side lorries for a stage and he was there at six in the morning getting it into position.

"We also had Coun Ashley Baxter organise the entertainment which lasted about four hours."

Proceeds from the event will go towards the Mayor's charity fund, which this year is helping children with learning difficulties.

Coun Moran added that she had 'big plans' for next year.

"The Christmas lights were new last year but we are hoping to extend them all the way down the High Street," she said.

"We are talking to local businesses about it and they are all keen with the idea."
