Lighting Up Brixton

Mayor of Lambeth, Cllr Seleha Jaffer is on tour around the borough switching on local Christmas Lights. Team Vox caught up with her in #Brixton where she was helped by local hero Levi Roots.

The event in Brixton on Friday 2nd December 2016 was organised by Brixton Bid and sponsored by local department store Morleys and MacDonalds.

Reporter @SharraeNewell spoke to apprentice and Project Assistant Reece Swimwogere about his part in co-ordinating the switch on.

Local school children from Copris Christi Choir and Majestic Brass provide the Christmas music before the switch on of the light on the Christmas Tree in Tunstall Road.

Our reporter Adebayo Adeaga spoke to Mayor Jaffer about what the event means to her and she gave a Christmas message to Lambeth about community harmony.

Just before the big switch on local hero Levi Roots joined the festivities. After a warm welcome from locals, @SharraeNewell spoke to him about the sense of community spirt in #Brixton
