Keeper to get Christmas underway in Lion Walk.
Colchester United goalkeeper Sam Walker and fluffy mascot Eddie the Eagle will be helping to get the festive season underway in Colchester this Sunday (November 30th), as they turn on the lights in Lion Walk Shopping Centre.
The U's have opened up a Christmas shop in Red Lion Yard this week, and Sam - who has been ever present for the U's first team in League One this season - will be on hand to light up Lion Walk ahead of a busy December.
The shot stopper will also be in the town centre shop from 3.30pm until 4pm to sign autographs for any festive shoppers.
Then all eyes will be on Sam at 4.30pm as he turns on the lights close to the Lion Walk Church!
There is a full programme of festive entertainment on Sunday plus fireworks after the lights are switched on.
You can find details about what's happening on the Lion Walk website under the What’s On section
We look forward to seeing you all there on Sunday.
