Barkingside will never be the same again
What a Night!
Barkingside was rocking last night and it was a night when we should all be proud of the Partnership.
I would like to say a special thank you to the Kenneth More Theatre they were brilliant,

The St Augustine’s Choir
The Hillbilly Express who were excellent
Lee Scott our MP
And let’s not also forget Ziggy what a nice guy
Father Christmas, the snowman, elves and reindeer well done Angie and the staff from Tootsie. You put 100% into the event and it paid of
Father Christmas Horse and Carriage supplied by Hawes funeral directors
The Clowns and Jugglers supplied by the Great British Circus
And the Fireworks wow!
A big thank you to Martin from Pizza Hut for his hard work and who co-ordinated all the events on stage (I think you are in the wrong Job Mate!)
I would also like to say a special thank you to Time Radio and the Ilford Recorder who gave us so much publicity.
Martins mum and Chris who supplied the PA system.
Elliot from James shoe care who worked hard with me and Martin setting up the stage.
Daniel Home Hardware and Angie Tootsie who were working hard getting all the stage material and performers ready.

Pizza Hut who supplied the Pizzas
Haven House Girls what lovely people
Willie the janitor who plugged us into the National Grid.
The Army and Navy crew for helping on the night.

This event took 3 weeks to organize and it all started at our last partnership meeting where the £1000 we had raised for the Christmas lights was match funded by the Councils regeneration team and Area 3 pledged £4,500 towards the lights.
I hope you will all attend our next meeting on Tuesday 4th December at 5.30pm at the Pie and Mash Shop where we will be organizing the first Continental street market to come to Barkingside on the weekend of the 16th December

Message from your treasurer.
Ps (Begging Note)
The event cost us quite a bit more than we thought so if anyone who has not contributed to the Christmas fund please drop you payment into Daniel at Home Hardware.
We would like to hold more events in the future and we can only do this with your help, also if you would like an active roll please attend the next meeting.
