An estate in Telford is to get its own Christmas lights for the first time in more than 20 years.
The £20,000 project will see Malinslee get some extra sparkle for the festive period after the community came together to support the scheme.
Lights will be erected on Malinslee shops while a Christmas tree will be planted soon.
It will become a permanent fixture in the shopping centre.
A switch-on celebration is now planned for Friday, November 23 with Telford MP David Wright and borough councillors Shaun Davies and Kuldip Sahota.
Councillor Davies said it was an important event for the area.
He said: “I am delighted with how it is going and it is one of two really important community events organised for the area that have not happened for at least 20 years.
“We have not had an annual fun day for two decades and we held one in July.
“We want to build on that by having a Malinslee Day next year together with the lights switch-on.”
The project has been funded by Great Dawley Parish Council and the local councillors who have used money from the Ward Co-operative Fund for the scheme.
Mr Wright said: “There’s been a massive effort in regenerating Malinslee centre in recent years and this shows an on-going commitment to making the local centre a focal point for the community.
“I went to the event in July which was incredibly well attended by hundreds of people and I hope there will be a big turnout for the Christmas lights too.”
Councillor Davies said local shops, including One Stop and Malinslee Fish Bar, were supporting the scheme.
The hairdressers, Million Hairs, have also agreed to care for the Christmas tree throughout the year.
The switch-on celebration, sponsored by The RMP Group, of Stafford Park, starts at 4.30pm in front of the new Malinslee Centre.
The event will include a visit by Father Christmas and street dancers. Pupils from Old Park Primary School, in Brunel Road, will sing during the event
St Leonard’s Church will also have a cake stall to raise funds for the church. Charity stalls are also due at the event.
Telford police have also agreed to sponsor a fireworks display.
