FORMER Ledbury business woman, Yvonne White, has a Christmas tradition all of her own, and it helps local soccer sides.

Last year she has decided that the festive decorations on her house and in her garden should be a seasonal fundraiser.

And this year will be no exception, with money from donations going to The Ledbury Swifts and Ledbury Town Football Club.

Football is close to Mrs white’s heart, because a grandchild plays for the Swifts and other members of her family are involved with the local football scene.

Mrs White’s illuminated and decorated garden in Bye Street has long been one of Ledbury’s best loved spectacles during the Christmas period, because of the sheer effort she and her family put in, to ensure the display has the festive ability to stop passers by in their tracks.
