Walney's community hub has decided to keep the popular illuminations switched off following the news the Barrow region is now in Tier four.

On its Facebook page yesterday, Round House Hub and Cafe said: “Tier four notice: with the new restrictions coming in place at midnight tonight, we have decided that unfortunately #walneyilluminations will remain switched off so we do not encourage people to leave their homes, we know this is disappointing.”

The lights have been hailed by many across the region and this news will be a huge blow to all those who enjoy visiting.
