Businesses and residents are already embracing the Christmas spirit.

They are donating new and unused games and toys to the Access Self Storage Christmas Toy Appeal, in aid of The Children’s Society.

Access Self Storage Purley Way Store Manager, Gabriel Kroukamp said: “We have been overwhelmed by the generosity of the public and local businesses. Last year was such a success as we had over 300 gifts donated and we are on our way to smashing that record this year!”

Drop off points are at the office at 80 Gloucester Road, Croydon and 13 Whitestone Way, Purley Way and are open until 13 December 2012, when donations will be collected and deliverrd to the local Children’s Society store.

The Children’s Society works with and supports some of the most vulnerable and disadvantaged children and young people in the UK.

I was there, with the throngs of excited people waiting for the switching on of the lights ! We counted down 10.9,8 etc... the excitement grew. Then with a flick of a switch the lights were on ! Except that most of the crowd thought that they was a malfunction as no lights appeared to come on... but then we saw the trickle of lights in the trees... yes, that was IT ! People were laughing in the street. Shame on you Croydon, less hype MORE lights !! It's Christmas you know...
