Inspiring Wansford youngster Seb Goold will do the honours at the rearranged Stamford Christmas lights switch-on this week.

Stamford Town Council has confirmed that the event will now take place at 4.30pm on Thursday (December 3). The switch-on was supposed to happen at Stamford Christmas Festival on Sunday (November 29). But both events were cancelled because of expected bad weather.

The festival itself will not be rescheduled.

Keen sportsman Seb Goold had to have his right leg amputated above the knee after falling from a moving coach in April last year. But he is now well on the road to recovery, in part thanks to donations to the Seb Goold Trust, which is aims to fund specialist prosthetics and equipment to help Seb play sport once more.

Seb will switch on the lights alongside mayor of Stamford Sue Sandall.
