A spectacular festive lights display at a house in Weston-super-Mare has been named the best in the UK.
Bev Poole and her family, with the help of their neighbour Lorraine Goddard, have gone all out to spread festive cheer this Christmas with an impressive, illuminated display at their home within the Haywood Village development.
The Christmas cracker of a house on Mamba Grove includes lights draped from the top of the property and cascading down to the fence, as well as more lights around the guttering.
The family, which includes Bev, her husband and four children aged between four and 15, entered Persimmon Homes’ national competition to find the best dressed home in the UK.
The contest was open to anyone who had ever bought a Persimmon property, with the winner scooping a luxury seasonal hamper from Selfridges.
Bev said: “We like to put on a bit of a show. A lot of the people on the estate get involved, not just for Christmas but Halloween as well.
“We did a bit extra this year with everything that has happened. We’re on the main road so plenty of people can see it as they pass. The kids love it.
“There’s a great community feel at Haywood Village and it’s great to be part of that.
“We’ll try and do a bit more next year. We’ll need a cherrypicker next year to reach the top of the house!
“It was a great surprise to win the competition, a real treat.”
Carly Spear, sales director at Persimmon Homes Severn Valley, said: “After the year we’ve all had it’s great to see some festive cheer around the area.
“We had some fantastic entries from right across the UK but this house really caught the eye.
“It looks great and I’m sure it has brought a smile to many people’s faces in the town.”
Persimmon Homes has built more than 1,000 at Haywood Village, which also includes a primary school and local centre.
The latest phase of work, The Beeches, is well underway, with the first residents moving in this week.
A total of 2,550 houses will be built at former Weston Airfield site.
