Streets across Borehamwood and Elstree were lit up yesterday afternoon as the Mayor helped by the local football team, switched on the festive lights.

Mayor of Elstree & Borehamwood, Cllr Victor Eni, pressed the magic button, outside All Saints Church in Shenley Road to illuminate the town centre, neighbouring streets, and of course the Christmas tree.

He was joined by Boreham Wood FC manager Luke Garrard and players from the National League side.

Dozens of people turned out for the switch-on and they were kept entertained with music by Borehamwood Brass and carol singers.
