report on the above mentioned event attended by upwards of 200 residents
Saturday 5th December saw a crowd of up to two hundred village residents come together for the annual Village Council Christmas Lighting Up event at South Green Parade of Shops. The music of the South Green Baptist Choir got the crowd in a festive mood with a selection of traditional carols.
Then South Green Infants School choir, accompanied by The Head Teacher and Music Teacher, sang a sweet medley of modern carols which told the Christmas story. A helpful elf was on hand to announce Father Christmas who emerged from the green grocers with sweets for the children. Kacey Paxton and Amelie Walsh of South Green School and Cllr Danny Lawrence, Deputy Major of Basildon Borough Council, and of course Father Christmas, then pressed the plunger to light the lights at South Green shops. Kacey and Amelie were presented with a chocolate Father Christmas and a certificate in gratitude for turning on the lights.
