Yesterday I had a wonderful time at Whitton’s Christmas Lights Switch On. Not only did I do the 3k walk (injury meant I could not do the 5k run, honest!) but I was able to watch Dusty the Dog switch on the lights. My wife also managed to enjoy the market and we ended up with a fabulous new chopping board among other things.
Fantastically organised by the Whitton Business Association once again it was fantastic to see Whitton’s residents out together enjoying what our town has to offer. I met many of the volunteers, who without which the event wouldn't be possible. And I should also say a thank you to Bridget Clements, our wonderfully hard working Town Centre Manger, who was once again ensuring everything went smoothly (and with her trusty clipboard).
Oh and I mustn't forget my favourite part of the Christmas event. The Human Fruit Machine. Although I didn't win the ladies did manage two oranges and lemon. So close to the 50p prize. All in the name of charity. Fantastic.
And what better day to end the evening then a quick pint with the boys from Whitton Lions.
