The parliamentarian is launching the contest as a "great way to spread some Christmas cheer around our town" following a challenging year coping with the coronavirus crisis.

He is encouraging everyone to get their Christmas lights and decorations out for the festive season, with he and his team visiting all the best lit streets which have been nominated by the people of Ipswich to choose a winner.

"It will be very exciting for the whole town to see Ipswich glowing in all its festive glory and looking forward to a much, much, brighter 2021," he said.
