Inspired by last Friday’s Market Rasen switch on, reader Geoff Hill sent in this colourful picture, which shows how the town was lit up just 15 years ago, in 2000.

“I posted this on the Market Rasen Memories Facebook site and the response from lots of people has been very emotive,” Geoff told the Rasen Mail.

“I wonder if there is any chance of getting them back in the future?”

Do you have pictures of how the town was decorated for Christmas in days gone by?

Send them to us here at the Rasen mail in the usual way or call into the Rasen Hub on a Friday morning.
