A festively decorated home in Milton Lilbourne is a family affair with everyone getting involved in putting up the Christmas lights display.

The Bowers family, of Forge Close, have been adorning their house and garden each December for the past nine years.

Both 11-year-old Kayleigh and six-year-old Chloe help parents Steve and Claire design and put up the display.

This year’s offering includes a nativity scene and reindeer statues on the front garden along with Father Christmas and snowmen.

Mrs Bowers, 38, said: “We put it up for fun rather than for charity as the children love the display and so do the neighbours, we have had a lot of comments.

“It only took a couple of hours to put up as we all get involved and the girls help design the display.

“This year we must have at least 20 different lit up figures.”
