Tim said: "Torchlight is one of the high points of the year. I love going with Rosie and the kids and usually I try to either be a marshal or on a float raising money for local good causes. I hope that lots of people come forward to be a marshal. Torchlight represents the best of Kendal - the whole community coming together to celebrate.

"I also want to pay tribute to the team who have re-started Torchlight. They should be incredibly proud of their efforts and I will continue to help and support them in any way I can."
