A town council could hold its Christmas lights switch on virtually this year.
Thetford Town Council was hoping for a bigger and better Winter Wonderland weekend than ever this year.
But as the coronavirus pandemic continues to cancel upcoming events, the council have said it is difficult to plan for the future.
A spokesman said: “Fear not, our Christmas lights switch will still go ahead in some form even if it is virtual.
“The problem is that no one knows what situation we will be in then and hopefully we won’t suffer a second wave and people can enjoy their Christmas.

“The lights switch on is a firm favourite in the calendar and a Thetford Christmas would not be the same without it.
“It is important to have that burst of light, colour, music and fun in the winter months and I suspect this will be even more important to people this year.
