SLIDESHOW: Epworth gets lit up for Christmas

Thousands of folk turned out to see the Christmas season start in Epworth.

The annual lights switch on, which was carried out by pupils of Epworth County Primary School, was the culmination of an afternoon of festive fun at the town’s Imperial Hall where a Victorian style market was held.
