Tonbridge Lions Club has announced a new competition for Christmas lights outside domestic homes in the Tonbridge area.
Based on an idea of the late Lion Eric Ham who died last April, the club has decided to offer three £200 prizes, to be given to the local charities nominated by the owners of the best Christmas lights displays.
One prize will go to the winners in three postcode areas, TN9, TN10 and TN11. In addition the winners will each receive a Christmas hamper for themselves.
Entries are limited to private domestic residences and photographs of the lights will be required (either by post or e-mail) for the initial assessment.
The judges will then visit the three best installations in each area before picking the three winners.
The judging panel will include the President of Tonbridge Lions, Mike Stout, the son of Lion Eric Ham, Mr Robert Ham, and local sculptor, Guy Portelli KBA, ARBS.
Entry forms can be downloaded from the Lion's web-site – www.tonbridgelions.co.uk - Closing date for entries is 15th December 2012.
