LIGHTS UP: St Albans resident transforms house into spectacular light display to raise money for charity

 Published on: 3rd December 2020   |   By: Holly Bullen   |   Category: Uncategorized

A St Albans house which has been decorated with wonderful Christmas lights for seven years has stepped up this year with over 200 sets of lights on the house.

Motorcycle instructor Ronn Tapp who decorates his house on Sandpit Lane said he enjoys both putting up the lights and seeing people enjoying them.

He said: “The biggest thing is that it puts a smile on people’s faces and that’s what it’s about.

“We’ve just had a month of lockdown, so I’ve had all the time in the world to put up the lights this year.

“The house is well known for two things, the motorbike man which is me and is also known as the Christmas house.”

For the past few years Ronn has been raising money in honour of his wife’s late husband Barry Roberts who passed away from cancer.

He said: “We started the JustGiving page when things really took off and we were up to about 100 sets of lights. It made sense that Marie Curie would be the charity we would sponsor for their support.”
