The Festive Trail 2020 has now been illuminated, courtesy of 11-year-old Aimee Farr who pressed the ON switch at 4pm on Saturday 12th December, as the countdown was broadcast live on Red Kite Radio, 107.2 fm
Festival entrants had been asked to join in the Countdown and switch on their lights together at 4pm for maximum impact, while other households in the village also joined in by switching on their lights at the same time.
Aimee Farr, who attends Haddenham Community Junior School, was invited to conduct the formal switch-on after experiencing an especially tough year — see here.
