The annual Christmas light switch on, set up by the Northwood Hills Residents Association (NHRA) has proved to be yet another success on November 16.
The NHRA chairman, Andrew Riley, told NorthwoodAndRuislipNews it was “the perfect day” with a turnout of over 800 people.
Andrew said: “It was all ran fantastically, and the weather was kind. We had students from the St Johns School, Hillside Junior School and Harlyn Primary School.
“Tesco’s kindly donated 750 mince pies to the event, the Namaste Lounge also kindly donated some free samosas and vegetarian rolls.
“Altogether, we raised over £650, and £200 was donated to the Mayor of Hillingdon’s chosen charities.”
Deputy Mayor of the London Borough of Hillingdon, councillor Teji Barnes, said: “I would like to say that I was so pleased to be able to attend and switch on the Christmas lights.
“The event was very well attended by the community, who watched the brilliant and festive performances of local schools.
“The event was superbly organised by the Queens awarded Northwood Hills Residents Association and my thanks go to Andrew Riley BEM ACIB, Chairman of the Association and his wonderful team.”
2019 marked the residents association 11th year running the Christmas light switch on.
