HARDEN'S Christmas lights switch-on had to be postponed at the weekend because of a power cut.

The village was due to turn on its lights in a ceremony on Sunday at 5pm but the power went out at about 4pm and did not come back on in time.

The switch-on will instead take place at 5pm this Sunday - providing, Councillor Kay Kirkham said, there isn't another power cut.

The event was to be followed by drinks and refreshments in St Saviour's Church.
