THE festive season descended upon Corringham on Friday as the town's Christmas lights were switched on.

The Corringham Events Committee laid on quite a celebration, as Hayley McLean - the town's very own European U20 hurdles gold medalist - was joined by Thurrock Mayor Anthony Fish to turn on the lights.

Entertainment was provided throughout the evening by AJ the Entertainer, while the Thurrock Spectrum Band joined local singer Louis Sorrell-Wilde in playing a selection of Christmas songs to the crowds who had turned out.

Thursday sees the town's Christmas Festival, with music and entertainment being provided by Youth Creation, David Van Day and Sue Moxley and The Heaters. The fun begins at 5.30pm in the town centre.
