You may have noticed something slightly different about the estate recently. Over the last two weeks, the plot where Edgson House once stood was transformed into a festive extravaganza. Adorned with an array of Christmas illuminations, stalls and a temporary ice rink the ‘Ebury Lights’ event could be seen from far and wide.
Over 1,300 local residents visited the event and enjoyed ice skating, crafts, Christmas fayre, Carol-oke, Santa’s grotto and reindeers, St Barnabas School Choir and much, much more.
Cllr Rachael Robathan, Cabinet Member for Finance, Property and Regeneration, had the honour of switching on the lights with young Ebury Bridge resident Alexander, which officially kicked off the festivities.
Thursday 5th December saw the start of the eight day event in which over 1,300 visitors enjoyed a host of festive activities. This was the first of the meanwhile events to take place at Ebury Bridge with work on the semi-permanent ‘Ebury Edge’ taking place in the new year.
Ebury Lights was a celebration of the Ebury Bridge community spirit which was plain to see as residents from all walks of life came together for some pre–Christmas fun.
Everyone on the Ebury Bridge team would like to wish you all very warm seasons greetings and a happy new year.
