As all of Eton Wick know we had a Christmas tree in the village for the very first time last year . This was organised by EWVA , it was a great event with carol singing mince pies mulled wine and brought the community together young and old . Last year was done on a small budget and in a short space of time . We ended up with battery lights that we had to change several times through the month at silly times of the night ..
Well his year we would like to go bigger and better , with professional lights that we will own and be able to add to year on year . We have better organised music with back ground music, a singer and hopefully be able to bring in the choir. We shall have minced pies , mulled wine and wouldn't it be great for santa to appear .
Last year was fantastic and was achieved with donations from local businesses, residents and EWVA funds . This year we are trying to apply to as many people as possible we already have some really kind donations from places like Heathrow community fund , baldwins trust , collection pots in local shops to name a few . But we are falling well short we are behind again as unfortunately I fell ill and left me missing months of fundraising opportunities. I was typing up begging letters from some charities whilst in hospital . Now I am begging and asking for everyone's help to raise funds , however large or small every little helps , please share with your friends and your family and let's make this a community event to remember . Just like the fireworks are a brilliant and well turned out success and happens year on year , I would love this to be the same to bring our community together . In this harsh world we live in its so nice to have bright things to look forward to .. so please if you can please help with giving what you can that would be great , and if you can't afford to give then please just help by coming along to light up night and enjoy yourselves .
