Thank you to everyone who came out to support the Northcote Road Christmas Fair on Friday 24th and Sunday 26th November.
Once again there was a great crowd out on Friday night, visiting Hamptons Santa’s grotto, the real-life reindeers arranged by Rampton Baseley, and supporting the many businesses that put on special events including many charitable stalls. There was also plenty of mulled wine and a visit from Dunwoody, the Trotters’ pig. We would like to thank the choirs of Belleville, Honeywell, Dolphin and Bolingbroke Academy for their singing prior to the light switch-on by Snow Angel and Bear from the cast of Snow White Rose Red at Battersea Arts Centre.
On Sunday, Battersea’s famous shopping street, already known as a haven of diversity with specialist shops, boutiques and restaurants, hosted an additional 70 stalls, offering an amazing variety of Christmas gift ideas. Residents were out in force to enjoy the cold but sunny day.
In addition, The Ickle Pickles Children's Charity, who were joined by the very popular ambulance of the London Neonatal Transfer service, would like to thank everyone for their support which helped them to raise £1548. Special thanks to all the businesses and traders who donated the 80 wonderful prizes.
Finally we would like to thank the following businesses for their generous support, without which the event could not take place: Estbury Basements, Artesian, Like Minders, KiddiPlan, Flight Centre, Hamptons, JoJo Maman Bébé, Kinleigh Folkard & Hayward, Mamas & Papas, Marsh & Parsons, Osteria Antica Bologna and Trotters.
The event was led by Northcote Business Network, chaired by Jonathan Dyson, which is supported by the Clapham Junction Town Centre Partnership, Wandsworth Council. The media sponsor was NappyValleyNet.com.
