Christmas officially arrived in Buckhurst Hill with another highly successful 'Christmas in Queens Road' charity event jointly organised by Buckhurst Hill Parish Council and Buckhurst Hill Residents’ Society. 

Hundreds of local families were greeted by Father Christmas and participated in games such as Hook-a- Duck, Hoop La, a Chess Challenge and Treasure Hunt, as well as being entertained by carol singers, musicians, Jebb the Stilt Walker, donkey rides, characters from 'Frozen' and by Magic Stephanie whose conjuring tricks enthralled children and adults alike.

There were also representatives from Carers UK, the parish council’s chosen charity for
2017, staffing a stall, as well as stalls for Buckhurst Hill Baptist Church and the Community Association.

A Carers UK representative said: "It was a fantastic afternoon enjoyed by everyone. Lots of interest was shown from young and old about the work of Carers UK. It was a very positive day."

Buckhurst Hill Residents' Society chairman Jenn Page said: "We are so grateful to all the
volunteers from the residents’ society as well as the parish souncil. Without their support and effort this event just would not have happened.

"We also appreciate the support that we received from local businesses who also really entered into the spirit. What a wonderful way to start the Christmas festivities. 

"I hope 2018’s event will be even bigger and brighter."

Buckhurst Hill Parish Council chairman councillor Neville Wright was also highly delighted by the afternoon.

He said: "It was really great to see everyone having a good time. Full credit has to
go to every one of the organising committee - parish council and Residents Society alike.

"Without volunteers from both organisations helping out, this event just would not have happened and would not be the success it has been. Well done to one and all."
