A TORCHlit procession will mark the Christmas lights switch-on at Mengham.

The Deputy Mayor and Mayoress of Havant, Councillors Gerald and Elaine Shimbart, will switch on the lights at the Hayling village at 5pm on Friday.

That will be followed by carols round the Christmas tree, a book signing by children’s author Ali Sparkes at Hayling Island Bookshop and late-night shopping until 8pm.
