Thousands of people from New Milton thronged Byron Road on Sunday evening not only to watch the switch on of the famous Byron Road Lights but also to listen to the renowned agricultural orchestra The Plonkers and to be entertained by celebrity and regular Channel 4 Countdown guest, Mr. Richard Digance.
Up and coming soloist Brogan Murphy wowed the crowded with her beautiful voice. Â The whole event is in aid of Hampshire and Isle of Wight Air Ambulance, raising thousands of pounds to help our life saving work.
The lights were jointly switched on by Katie Martin from BBC Radio Solent and Richard Digance. Â Â Richard then stayed on the charities stand to sign copies of his recent book â€˜Father Christmasâ€™s Journeyâ€™ with all proceeds going to the charity.
The lights will remain on right up to Christmas to allow everyone to view them and to make a donation to the charity. Â Â Â A Huge thank you to Ged Hollyoake and his wonderful family, relations and friends who put on this spectacular show, also to Richard Digance, Brogan Murphy and Katie Martin for supporting us in such a wonderful way.
