a picture would be good...could be privet or elder or something else. What size are the berries and how are they arranged?

Hi JJ, look up woody nightshade on Google, that might be the one

I know lots of things with white flowers, green then black berries.

But I don't know what a Christmas cherry is

Cheisrmas cherry is Solanum capsicastrum or Solanum Pseudo-Capsicum,

Sorry JJ, I should have said Black Nightshade, just a brain fog on my fingers

Christmas Box?  Sarcococca confusa.  That has small shiny dark green leaves, small white flowers followed by black berries.
