Hampshire children's hospice, Naomi House, has told ITV Meridian of its disappointment that the popular Greyhound Close Christmas lights display won't be going ahead this year.
The charity has received around £45,000 from donations from the annual festive event in Hedge End in Hampshire.
It has been cancelled due to an ongoing row with council chiefs about increased traffic and damage to grass verges.
Keith Wilson is from Naomi House:
The wet and windy weather this weekend has dampend a planned firework show in Maidenhead tonight. The Christmas lights switch on and music performances will still go ahead as planned from 5pm.
The lights will be switched on at 6pm by triple gold medal winning Paralympian Sophie Christiansen and The Mayor, Councillor Colin Rayner.
It's just over thirty shopping days to Christmas, and there's one pub that's already festooned in brightness - with thousands of lights. Not as many as previous years - to save on the electricity bill - but thousands nonetheless.
David Johns went to meet Phil Saunders, the landlord of The Marine pub in Eastbourne.
