The Jamaica Social Investment Fund's community Christmas tree - lighting ceremony brought cheer among the residents of the seaside community of Cooke Street in Savanna-L-Mar in Westmoreland.

The event, the residents said, brought joy and great hope to the approximately 500 people including women and children who are living in 296 houses.

They said many of them have never participated or witnessed such a ceremony because of the boundaries that are being maintained in the ongoing turf war and gang violence for approximately 40 years.
