Clive joined thousands of local people when he turned on the Christmas lights in Eltham High Street.
“This event gets bigger and better every year” said Clive. “I want to congratulate everyone who did so much to make this a night to remember”.
As well as a lantern-lit procession of local school children there were jugglers, dancers on stilts and even fire breathers. There was also a stage highlighting local musical talent. After the parade there was a spectacular firework display from the roof of Marks and Spencers.
