People living in a tight-knit community street have raised thousands of pounds after turning their road into a beautifully lit Christmas wonderland.
Residents of Paget Adams Drive, in Dereham, provided a real lift to the local community with a display of lights throughout December.
In 2020, the street raised a total of £2,058 for their charity of choice, The Salvation Army.
Matthew Peek, a resident, and representative for The Salvation Army, said he was "overwhelmed" by the generosity this year.
He said: "The demands for support have risen by over 30pc since Covid-19 and 6,700 children in Norfolk were helped over the Christmas period with toys.

"It was a real shame that the carol service could not take place in 2020 and I'm confident that 2021 will see a return.
"A huge thank you to the good folks of Paget Adams Drive and to those who came to support."
