Sporting heroes helped get the party started in Stapleford last weekend at the town’s Christmas lights switch-on.

Double Olympian and Beijing bronze medal-winning swimmer Joanne Jackson, European bronze medal winner in Taekwondo, Ruebyn Richards, and 2012 Olympic swimmer Grant Turner joined in the festivities in Stapleford town centre on Saturday.

As well as the lights switch-on and accompanying fireworks display, party-goers were treated to a packed programme of events and attractions including live music featuring local bands, a Christmas market and Santa’s Grotto.

The event was organised by Broxtowe Borough Council’s Town Centre Management Team in conjunction with Stapleford Town Council and the Stapleford Town Team.
