SPECTACULAR lights displays are continuing to bring Christmas cheer to communities on the Lizard.

Displays were switched on at Coverack, Mullion and Gweek at the weekend.

At Coverack the Christmas tree lights were switched on by Joan Kearsley; the tree was donated by Michael Tylor.

Local children and children from Coverack Primary School processed with their handmade lanterns through the village, and St Keverne and Coverack Brownies and Guides sang for everyone.

The Illumination Brass Band played Christmas Carols, adding to the festive atmosphere.

Over at Mullion what was described as a huge crowd gathered for the village's switch-on. Gweek Silver Band provided music and The Lizard 2000 group put on a barbecue.

There were also 29 trees entered in the village's Christmas tree festival including a number from local children's groups.

The lights were no less impressive at Gweek where the silver band once again played, and the names of the winners of a poetry competition at nearby Boskenwyn School were announced.
