Snow was seen in the front garden of one Huntingdon property last week when a spectacular Christmas lights display was officially switched on.

Two snow machines, skating snowmen and carol singers can be found in the front garden of 16 Elm Close along with a hundreds of Christmas lights.

The lights were officially switched on by BBC Radio Cambridgeshire presenter Jane Smith on Saturday.

Meticulously planned by homeowner Patricia Allen, it takes three days for her son Antony and his step-father Jack to put up the lights.

Our picture shows Jane Smith, from Radio Cambridgeshire, after she turned on the lights at 16 Elm Close with homeowners Jack, Patricia and Antony.
