Students from Pear Tree Mead and William Martin schools take part in Bush Fair Christmas Lights Switch On

SANTA, sporting a Harlow Town Football Club scarf that matched his traditional outfit well, braved the gales to visit Bush Fair on Tuesday night (December 10) to turn on the Christmas tree lights.

He said, “Even though it was colder than the North Pole, it was great to see so many children turning out to sing carols, enjoy mince pies and join in the festivities.”

Santa took the time to thank the Waterhouse Moor Residents’ Association and the Harlow Garden Centre for supplying the tree and the teachers, parents and carers who supported the children to take part. He gave special mention to the Bush Fair Traders, Steve and Carol from Waterhouse Moor and Councillors Eugenie Harvey, Mark Ingall and Jodi Dunne for organising the event, putting up the tree and decorating it with baubles and decorations made by the children of William Martin and Pear Tree Mead Schools.

Santa delighted the assembled children, who had previously sung Christmas Carols for the crowd of three hundred, by discussing whether they had been naughty or nice, and finding out what they wanted for Christmas. Lego seemed to be Santa’s favourite request. Finally before his departure, Santa climbed a ladder and led the countdown to the big switch on.

Councillor Mark Ingall said, “Has he been? Oh no, I missed him again!”
