West Byfleet residents celebrate light switch-on with virtual event

West Byfleet is set to be illuminated in a Christmas display this weekend, with residents attending in a slightly different fashion to previous years. This year’s Christmas lights switch on will be broadcast live on Facebook for residents to enjoy from the comfort of their own homes. The virtual ‘switch-on’ event has the added benefit of being able to be shared with friends and family near and far.  

Gary Elson, Chair of West Byfleet Business Association, said: ‘West Byfleet is never shy in expressing its Christmas cheer and we are delighted that we can still enjoy the festivities and showcase West Byfleet’s celebrations, albeit in a different format. We are grateful to JL Butchers for their hard work in organising the event.’ 

The event can be viewed on the ‘West Byfleet Village’ Facebook page at 6pm on Saturday 21 November. 

*The event will be streamed live on Facebook – please DO NOT attend the village to watch*
