Tokyo 2020 BMX racing champion Beth Shriever switched on Finchingfield's Christmas tree lights on Saturday (December 5).
Beth joined Santa Claus, his reindeer and a brass band to help Finchingfield mark the start of its festive season.
The lights switch-on, organised by the Finchingfield Guild and Parish Council, ran alongside a two-day Christmas Market and an Advent Windows showcase.
Finchingfield Parish Council chair Claire Collins praised the volunteers and small businesses who helped put on the show.
Councillor Collins said: "It was a great community event and we are really grateful for the support which we and the Guild received.
"There were lots of people out in the village who were there to cheer on Beth Shriever and enjoy each others' company.
"It was fabulous!"
