Bulb Shortages Mean No Hugh House Lights This Year

Hugh house xmasHugh House won’t be decorated with its traditional lights this Christmas but the Duchy says they are still helping to spread festive cheer amongst the community.

They’ve donated Christmas trees to the School, airport, Park House, Health Centre and The Park.

In previous years, a display reading ‘Happy Xmas’ has been visible across the town from the Duchy offices.

Deputy Duchy Land Steward Luke Humphries says the bulbs “had a life” and his team had tried to source replacements “at great expense.”

Luke says it is surprising how early in the year they are sold out.

He says they will have a replacement ready for next Christmas.
