Thanks to all Elm Villagers and friends who attended Sunday’s Big Lunch. The weather was perfect. Good conversation and songs. Thanks to all the volunteers and donations of food from our Camley Street business friends. Thanks to the Camden Garden Centre for the loan of their barbecue. And thanks to Zoe and Harriet for the musical interlude and entertaining the kids.
Thanks to all the Elm Villagers who came out to the Crescent and the Con for our annual sing song. A special thanks to Wendy at the Con for her hospitality and Mike and his crew at Camden Garden Centre for the wonderful Christmas tree on the Green.
Each year, our friends at the Camden Garden Centre donate a Christmas Tree to Evtra. The tree will be on the Green in the Crescent. It’s also a tradition for resident families and friends to gather round the tree.
Please join your neighbours and friends for a candle-lit family celebration around the tree on the Green in the Crescent (Rossendale Way). Monday 17th December 5:30pm – 6:15pm
Bring a couple of baubles for the tree
Come and sing Christmas songs and meet new neighbours
Mince pies, fizzy drinks for the kids
This is followed by our ever-popular festive sing-song which takes place in the Constitution from 7:00pm till 8:00pm. We gather in the bar cellar, with mince pies and mulled wine courtesy of our host Wendy, the Constitution’s lovely landlady. Music performed by Elm Village musicians and singers.
This is your chance to wish your neighbours the best of the season. Witness the strange and wonderful annual event that is Ed Lee’s highly animated rendition of The 12 Days of Christmas.
Evtra is accompanying representatives from Places for People to review the estate. This is an opportunity to hear PfP’s plans and highlight any concerns about maintenance. There will be a discussion about PfP’s Asset Management Plan – which is the long term maintenance schedule which includes major projects like windows and roofing. To join this group, look down Rossendale, Bergholt or Barker to see a small group of people and just come along.
