Switch on of Christmas Lights at Waterlooville – 22nd November

We were taken by horse drawn carriage from Wicks car park up Maurepas Way and thence into the London Road. What a sight we beheld, thousands of people waiting expectantly for Father Christmas to arrive with me to turn on the lights. The Waterlooville Forum Events Team did an incredible job, the organisation was so good. The characters from Frozen were around Waterlooville all day which encouraged footfall all the day long, By the time we got there it is estimated there were around 4,500 people watching. Great excitement on behalf of the children there were so excited seeing all the Disney characters, and Father Christmas. It was a privilege to be invited to do the countdown along with Richard Shaw to the lights being switched on.   They are lovely – well done to all the Waterlooville shops and businesses who supported. It is so appreciated.
