FOR the third year running, Falmouth’s Christmas lights will be switched on by a deserving member of the local community rather than a third-rate celebrity.

The Christmas lights will be switched on in front of hundreds of local residents at 7pm on Thursday, November 29 during a special celebration on The Moor.

Mr Gates said: “If you have any nominees please forward their details with the reason why you feel they deserve the chance to ‘light up’ Falmouth this Christmas.”

Nominations can be sent either via email to or by phoning the Town Management office on 01326 313553. Nominations will close on Friday, November 16, and the lucky individual will need to be free from 5.30pm to 7.30pm on the evening of the switch on.
