The streets of Stapleford are looking rather more festive after the town’s Christmas lights were switched on this weekend.

European Boxing Federation champion Adam Hinds pushed the plunger to turn the lights on in front of big crowds on Saturday night (November 23).

Mayor of Broxtowe Cllr Iris White was there too – and of course, so was Santa.
