The French family, of Wednesbury Road, have included a train track and a waving Father Christmas among other things, to help fundraise for King George and Queen’s Hospitals Charity.

Samantha French, 42, has helped her husband Colin, 41, with the lights for the last five years, and said: “We’ve always done this since the children were young.

The family hope to raise about £500 for the Children’s Ward and Neonatal Intensive Care Unit at Queen’s Hospital, Romford, after their grand-daughter, Tallulah Green, was cared for there.

Samantha said: “We had a very good experience at Queen’s Hospital, as both mum and baby were looked after extremely well. This is how we can give back,”
