Many residents voiced a desire for a Christmas tree to be placed at Stone Cross this Christmas period and thanks to the hard work of local councillors from Hateley Heath and Charlemont with Grove Vale wards, they have one.
Councillor Liam Preece said "It's important we listen to what residents want and, where we can, try and meet requests."
One resident said "It's lovely when I drive past on my way home. It makes it all feel really Christmassy."
The lights were switched on at 4pm today.
