Check out some of the pictures from Friday night's 'Elm Park Illuminations' when we marked the start of the festive season in Elm Park. It was a really fun evening and it was a privilege to join Councillor Roger Ramsay, the Mayor of Havering, in counting down to the big 'switch on' of the Elm Park Christmas Tree. The weather stayed dry - if a bit cold - but the warmth of feeling and community spirit was palpable. Just what Christmas should be about! Many congratulations to Ingrid Brandon, the Elm Park Regeneration Partnership and all of the local shops and businesses which took part.
