The Christmas lights switch-on lit up Lynn on Sunday with special guest Daisy Mason lighting up up the town centre herself.

Daisy, aged 10, from East Winch, was born 12 weeks early and has quadriplegic cerebral palsy. but has inspired so many by her determination.

Daisy was asked to press the switch to light up the town this year following in her family footsteps as her grandma switched on the lights 50 years ago in 1972 as Miss Chamber of Trade.

This was another tick to add to her list of accomplishments, such as completing the Mini GEAR in August and she won the hearts of the crowd at Sunday's event, including mayor Harry Humphrey and leader of the borough council, Stuart Dark.

Mr Humphrey said: "It was a tremendous turn-out with a very good band and everyone enjoying it. There were loads of people there and Daisy, with her parents and friend, was introduced by Stuart Dark who welcomed her as a special guest.

"Daisy is a fantastic little girl with all the things she does and she has a new powered wheel chair.

"She said a few words and the crowds loved it. She is absolutely fantastic and everyone cheered and clapped her. It was a fantastic atmosphere and I hope people had a good time."

Mr Dark said: "I knew she would be the perfect person to switch on our King’s Lynn Christmas lights this year, as a fantastic example of the spirit and resilience our great West Norfolk young people have shown throughout the pandemic."
