LAST night's Goodwill Evening saw Stroud awash with sea creatures for this year's Under the Sea theme.

Father Christmas switched on the lights and started the procession on the Sub Rooms' forecourt before hundreds of people watched mermaids, jelly fish, and other wonderful creatures swim through the town.

Many shops stayed open late and Stroud's famous music venues were filled with people dancing until the small hours.

A wonderful night, thank you from the SNJ to all of the Stroud Goodwill Evening volunteers and supporters for all of their hard work.
