Christmas is a time for festivities, food and family, but for these Lincolnshire residents, it’s also about having amazing outdoor lights!

Do you think you could do better than these amazing winter wonderlands?

Derek Turner and his wife Jean have been decorating the outside of their house on Louth Road, Wragby, with thousands of lights for the last 12 years.

In doing so, the couple have raised thousands for St Barnabas Hospice over the last 10 years.

Last year, the pair raised £1,000 for the charity, by collecting money from people who travelled to see the amazing house.

Anna Millhouse, 70, first put the lights up outside her home on Lincoln Road last year and decided to raise money for charity after a friend suggested the idea.

Last year Anna and her family helped raise £200 for Action for Childrenin Lincoln, which supports families with disabled children, and have already beaten that by raising £500 so far this year.

Anna has said she has spent thousands on the lights but has said she doesn’t really think about the money, as long as it puts a smile on children’s faces at Christmas.

The amazing light display on Grasby Crescent has been created by Tracey and Martin Connolly.

The couple decided to create the display and raise money for St Andrew’s Hospice in memory of their friend Dave Moreman, who died in 2015 aged just 36.

The hospice cared for Dave during the later stages of his five-year battle with a rare form of bone cancer called osteosarcoma.

Sadly, he passed away in January 2015, leaving behind his wife Holly and children Reece, 13, Gracie, 10, and Max, 8.
