Today children from Ladywell’s local RAZ After School Club helped to dress the Christmas tree when it arrived as part of Ladywell’s Christmas celebrations.
Local residents are also being asked to ‘bring a bauble’ and help finish decorating the tree between 11.00am and 12noon on Saturday 15 December before the tree lights are formally switched on at Ladywell’s Strictly Christmas market. The Young Mayor of Lewisham, Jamel Higgins, is guest of honour and will turn on the lights at 2.00pm.
Rose Gayle, Manager of the RAZ After School Club, said: “We’re all really excited about the celebrations in Ladywell. Christmas is a great time for children and we’re delighted to be able to take part in the preparations.”
9yr old Amoy Taylor who was helping with the decorating said “We’ve put some baubles on the tree but it needs some more. Everyone should make some because it’s fun and they’re shiny.” 10yr old Samantha Thompson said: “I’ve already made another one. I used glass paint and it’s gold and red. I’ve taken it home but I’m going to bring it back for the Christmas market.”
The tree has been donated by Glendale with lighting and installation costs funded through Ladywell Assembly and installed by Skanska.The LVIG Events Team
