Wapping Christmas Tree Lights Switch-On

christmas6.30-7.30pm, 8 December 2014, Wapping Green, E1W 2RW

This year, I have managed to get a Christmas tree arranged for our ward which will be installed on Wapping Green, Wapping Lane, and I thought it would be nice to get everyone together by organising an event around the switching on of its lights to which the whole community is invited.

Please come along on 8 December with your friends, children, colleagues and family to celebrate the tree with your neighbours here in Wapping. We are very lucky to have a very special guest who has agreed to switch the lights on and it promises to be a fun evening!

There is no budget for this event, I am instead relying on the good will, kindness and generosity of the local residents, businesses and community organisations here. So far, there’s been a great response and I list below some of the contributions already offered.

If you would like to spread the word, do download the poster I made for the event.
