At 6pm Olympian and local business man Daley Thompson will switch on the Christmas lights. Thamesfield councillor Mike Ryder said:
“It is great to have local celebrity Daley Thompson to switch on the lights, and I’m always delighted to see how many people turn out to the Christmas market and get ready to support Putney and its shops over the festive season. I think we’ve got a great High Street, so I hope residents do spend their pounds in Putney.”
