CHRISTMAS has arrived at the Spinning Gate Shopping Centre.

The Leigh shopping centre has been packed full of thousands of twinkling lights and Christmas decorations, providing a festive feel for shoppers.

A team of specialist contractors worked magically overnight to install the centres Christmas decorations.

They installed sparkling lights and decorations around the mall, beautifully dressed garlands suspended from the roof and twinkling bows wrapping the car park entrance of the mall.

Also, a huge 30ft Christmas tree has been decorated with hundreds of bronze, teal and gold baubles of all different sizes.
