Christmas Light Switch On and Shop

Debbie Abbott

The temperatures dipped, the snow fell and the crowds arrived in their thousands for this year’s Switch on and Shop with Edd China - TV presenter, mechanic, and inventor. Having arrived on his mobile sofa – the fastest sofa in the world - he successfully ‘flicked the switch’ for the town’s beautiful Christmas lights to roars of approval from the crowd.

“Over the past 20 years or so, I’ve seen Marlow change from a rather sleepy country town to this lively and interesting place with so much to offer,” Edd said.  “And we’ve all done that, all of us here. By voting with our feet and our wallets we have made Marlow a place for residents and businesses to thrive, so keep doing that!”

Mayor Chris Funnell said: “Every year we get compliments for our stunning Christmas lights, and this year is no exception. I’d like to thank our generous sponsors for supporting us, and of course the marvellous Edd China for being such a brilliant guest. A fantastic start to the Christmas season in Marlow!”
