Brackenbury Christmas Festivities

The great and the good of Hammersmith descended upon Brackenbury Village for the annual Christmas Tree Lighting event last week. The event, coordinated by the Brackenbury Village Residents’ Association, is a highlight in Hammersmith’s Christmas calendar. The Addison Singers made a joyful noise and local residents joined them in singing carols. Hammersmith & Fulham Council Leader Stephen Cowan and Councillor Harry Phibbs caught up with locals over a cup of mulled wine. H&F Mayor Mike Cartwright and Mayoress Rosemary Pettit were in attendance and had the honour of illuminating the tree. Our Director John Horton said of the tree lighting, “I come every year and can attest this event keeps getting bigger and better. It’s a testament to the love of the BRA for their community and the generous spirit of local residents, community groups and businesses.”

The raffle raised almost £400 for the BRA with generous donations from the Lyric Theatre, the Thatched House and Andover pubs, Stenton Family Butchers, Brackenburys Deli, Body and Brain Yoga and Horton and Garton. BRA Events Coordinator John Ashworth said of the afternoon, “The tree lighting was a lovely and happy event that hopefully brought the community of Brackenbury Village even closer together. The BRA is very grateful to everyone who contributed to our raffle which helped to cover the cost of new decorations for our Christmas tree.” For more information on the BRA, click on any image or visit: http://brackenburyresidents.co.uk/
