We would also like to thank those who helped make it happen:
Rathbones card shop in Old Church Road for donating the balloons, blowing them up and putting them on sticks, ready to go! They also helped Santa getting some of his gifts sorted, so a massive Thank You to them!
The Rotary Club for providing Santa and being there all afternoon handing out books, balloons and chocolate to the children - the children’s faces made our day!
The Carpet Shop on Albert Crescent for giving Santa somewhere to change
Sainsbury's for donating copious amounts of mince pies
Aroma for heating the mulled wine when the stall we hired for the job malfunctioned
…And of course Iain Duncan Smith for stepping in to get the mulled wine heated up and serving it to the thirsty crowd
The amazing Harmony E4 Choir for their fantastic performance
The Kings Ford for lending us their ladders for Jan and Sylvia to decorate the trees on Albert Crescent
Ainslie Wood school for advertising our event
The Regeneration and Town Centres team at LBWF.
***And a special thank you to the children of Chase Lane primary school and nursery unit for their spectacular tree decorations, Well Done to all of you!***
We look forward to seeing you back again for 2018 Switch-on.
