The rain eased off just in time for the Elm Village Season Celebrations just before the Christmas Holidays. A good time was had by all. Special thanks to all the organisers and performers including David & Harriet, Ed & Frances, Zoe, Jan, Pat, Peter, Nigel, Wendy and staff at the Constitution, Mike and his crew at Camden Garden Centre. Here’s a selection of photos sent in by residents.
Please join your neighbours and friends for a candle-lit family celebration around the tree on the Green in the Crescent (Rossendale Way). 19th December 5:30pm – 6:15pm
- Bring a couple of baubles for the tree
- Come and sing Christmas songs with Harriet, our resident multi-instrumentalist
- Mince pies, fizzy drinks and a lucky dip for the kids
This is followed by our ever-popular festive sing-song which takes place in the Constitution at 7:00pm. We gather in the bar cellar, with mince pies and mulled wine courtesy of our host Wendy, the Constitution’s lovely landlady. This is your chance to wish your neighbours the best of the season and belt out Away in a Manger as heartily as you can.
Members of the EVTRA committee will be delivering member newsletters to your door in the next few days. It contains updates on noise, Neighbourhood Watch, events, useful contacts and more. We’ll be posting it online as well soon.

The rain held off for just long enough and the Big Lunch went on, very successfully indeed – with lots of thanks due to David and Harriet Powell and all their helpers for their hard work. Loads of Elm Villagers turned out for a veritable feast and chit chat. We even had a visit from our Police Safer Neighbourhoods team (one of them had a particularly hearty appetite – no names mentioned). Let’s look forward to another such occasion.
