The pianist and song-writer of one of the UK’s top bands switched on Polegate Christmas lights this year.

Polegate Mayor David Watts said that Tim Rice-Oxley, from Keane, told him he was ‘honoured’ to have been asked.

Cllr Watts thanked Tim, who lives near Polegate for coming to the town’s Dickensian event on November 28 and thanked the public for their support – despite the rainy weather.

“Long may it continue, added Cllr Watts.
