The days are getting shorter and the temperature is getting lower which can only mean one thing; Christmas is right around the corner.

And to celebrate, Sutton Council has been busy at work decorating the borough with Christmas lights as far as the eye can see.

Councillor Steve Cook, chair of the Beddington and Wallington Local Committee: "Great to see the Christmas lights up and in situ so early.

"Re-assuring to know we are ahead of the game, making our plans for the Wallington Christmas Festival all that much easier.

"Happy Christmas to all our residents."

The council said that all six local committees will fund this year's festive lights, at 24 spots across Sutton. This was welcome news to Councillor Annie Moral, chair of the St Helier, Wrythe, and the Wandle Local Committee.

"Christmas lights and celebrations go together," she said.

"Long may it continue in our borough"

The Successful Sutton Bid team will continue to fund the majority of Sutton High Street lights.

The festive light motifs which are currently being installed on lamp columns and tree lights will be all up by the end of November.

The first switch-on event will start with Sutton High Street on Saturday, November 23. This will be closely followed by nine more switch-on events with all remaining lights being switched on by early December.
