Hunt for Cumbria's best dressed festive house

Decorating the garden with festive lights is something Nicola McVeigh looks forward to every year.

The 27-year-old of Rowe Terrace, Workington, has an array of beautiful white lights with polar bears and penguins adorning her garden.

The mum-of-two said: “The garden is well admired and it’s a bit different because the lights are white rather than coloured.

“There are a couple of other houses on our street with lights but not many. I think it’s a nice thing to do and my two children Lauren and Leon love them.”

The News & Star is looking for the best and the brightest house lights in our region and the householder with the most sparkle will walk off with a cash prize.

All the festive displays will be judged by Electricity North West, the company that owns and operates Cumbria’s power network, and the most impressive will be crowned winner of the 2012 Electricity North West Best Lit House competition. The competition winner will pocket £100.

As well as choosing the most festive display, Electricity North West is also on hand to help you prepare for any unexpected power cuts.

Martin Deehan, Cumbria area manager for Electricity North West said: “The network is 99.99 percent reliable, but sometimes power cuts can happen due to events out of our control.

“Whether because of vandalism or an act of nature, such as severe weather or falling trees, the supply of electricity can sometimes be interrupted unexpectedly so hopefully these tips will help you be prepared.”

Will changes to the stop and search code increase your trust in the police?

I already trust our police to act in the best interests of the law-abiding

Don't care. I doubt stop and search is used much in Cumbria anyway

No. Who's to say the new code will be followed faithfully?
