“We saw an increase in visitor numbers this year.

“Big thank you to all of our stall holders, Pic ‘n’ Clix, Corby Silver Band and Friends of Stamford and Rutland Theatre for carol singing.”

The lights are on daily from 4.30pm until midnight with visitors welcome.

Donations will be collected throughout December and the total will be added up and announced in January.

Spanhoe Lodge expects the total will beat last year’s effort of £335.
