Empowering local people to develop and support projects that will enhance our shared communal spaces
The Palmers Green Christmas Festival and illuminations are looking at making Christmas BIG once again on the high street. We will be displaying either a 25ft Christmas tree with the road being illuminated with Christmas Lights. We will have a total of 47 poles lit with lights 44 are being funded by us with the help of the council. 3 are being provided by the council in addition to a 25ft christmas tree. Shops will be decorating their shopfronts with Christmas decorations in the first ever Palmers Green storefront competition. Local residents and customers will be the JUDGES and first place will receive a reward of some kind. Santa Clause is COMING to town! We will have someone dressed up as Santa Clause with potentially a few elves to accompany him. The GRINCH may also be around causing some harmless mischief :O (we're looking forward to the schools reactions) All the local shops will be staying open till late! There will be treats handed out!
What we'll deliver:
Why it's a great idea:
The Green lanes business association wants to destroy the walls separating the Business and its consumers. Its time the two become one with the businesses giving back to the local residents and everyone who supports the local shops. This is a great way to bring back quality relationships and a sense of community to Palmers Green. We have to BE THE CHANGE we want to see. It's important that we begin connecting with each other and support both the local residents and the local businesses. Christmas surpasses just the religious aspect of the holiday. It is important to be inclusive to everyone and bring everyone together to enjoy the lights and sense of community.
