Harold Hill lit up with a bang for Christmas

Harold Hill was lit up last week at a special event.

Father Christmas, fairground rides and local school choirs helped make the festive event go off with a bang on Thursday last week.

The Mayor of Havering Cllr Lynden Thorpe switched on the lights, with local history filmmaker and Phoenix FM presenter Mike Jones performing as master of ceremonies.

A statement from the Harold Hill Festival Committee said: “The committee thought that Light Up Harold Hill was a well-attended, enjoyable festive event for all the family.

“Our mascot, Harry the Squirrel, particularly enjoyed the local childrens’ choirs.
