Christmas Lights in South Wimbledon

Donation protected
The South Wimbledon Enhancement Plan is a community led initiative in south west London to improve the area of South Wimbledon. A group of local residents came together in January 2017 to discuss and agree a plan of action to tackle community related issues in the area. The plan will eventually become the South Wimbledon Enhancement Plan.

One of the issues identified in discussions is the lack of any Christmas lights in South Wimbledon. As part of the Enhancement Plan initiative, local residents approached Merton Council to ask if a Christmas tree and some Christmas street lighting could be installed in South Wimbledon.

The Council has agreed to provide a Christmas tree on the understanding that it will cover the cost of installing the tree and the associated works, in addition to the electricity costs, if that can be matched with a modest contribution from local residents and businesses.

This campaign is intended to raise £200 to cover the cost of the Christmas tree and lights for South Wimbledon this year. In future years, we hope to cover the cost of the tree through grant funding as part of the wider South Wimbledon Enhancement Plan activity.

The Christmas tree will be installed on the land immediately adjacent to the bus stop behind the Kilkenny Tavern on Merton High Street. We hope to have a formal 'switch on' ceremony to mark the first community Christmas tree for South Wimbledon.

This Gofundme campaign is led by Andrew Boyce, a South Wimbledon resident and facilitator of the South Wimbledon Enhancement Plan works. All money raised will be paid to Merton Council for the cost of the tree.

Any additional monies raised above the £200 required to cover the cost of the tree and lights will be donated to a local charity nominated by the South Wimbledon Enhancement Plan residents group.

Thank you for your support!
