Glos Rd Central Christmas street party

RAINY conditions didn’t put a stop to Gloucester Road Central’s Christmas celebrations last month.
Families gathered along the high street, at the top of Pigsty Hill, to enjoy the Ashley Down and Bishop Road choirs, as well as a number of delicious treats served up by Café Dream, Joe’s Bakery and Boston Tea Party.
Mr Gotalot, the puppet from Monkey Trousers Theatre, also made a special appearance to share news of his upcoming show.
The evening marked the start of the street’s Thursday late-night shopping, which aimed to encourage customers to shop local throughout December.

Coldharbour Road

FESTIVE cheer was had in Coldharbour Road last month at its annual Christmas street party.
The event was highly attended by local residents and customers, who enjoyed browsing and purchasing the wares on offer.
Hazel Burville from Coldharbour said: "We were absolutely packed all evening, and it was lovely to see so many of our artists and customers all together there.
"Stars of the show were Abigail McDougall with a set of new originals; Pat Armstrong with her copper-fumed raku pots; and mosaic artist Toni Burrows who was signing copies of her new book The Last Apple."
