Town Mayor Cllr Alvin Finch helped switch on the Christmas lights in Bracknell Town Centre.
He said: “It was heartening to witness the thousands of people who made their way to the Town Centre for the Christmas lights switch on, and the passion of the crowds in both Princess Square, and Charles Square. It was great to have national Bracknell celebrity Dani Harmer, and her Academy to lead us in the pre-Christmas celebrations.”
“It was magnificent to assist Dani switch on the Christmas lights with the Borough Mayor and Matt and Michelle from Heart radio. Pushing the buttons not only celebrated the coming of Christmas but helped cheer the demolition of the old buildings and herald the new Town Centre. To complete the celebrations we had a brilliant flourish of fireworks to see in Christmas, and out with the old town.”
He added: “The eagerness of people to be involved made me even more proud to live in this tremendous place that is Bracknell.”
