London is full of great places to visit. Here is just the tip of the ice burg. Thanks, World of Wanderlust.
Hillingdon last week. Our 5th place winners.
WHAT A GREAT NIGHT
JAM2000 dancers who won £6,000 for Hillingdon Mayor’s Charity Appeal performing in the rain-hit London New Year’s Day Parade 2017 (LNYDP) wer...e formally recognised for their achievement at a special awards ceremony at Uxbridge Civic Centre on Monday evening.
Hillingdon Mayor, Cllr John Hensley, presented medals to the 45 performers, whose ages ranged from 6 to 50+, as well as to a small army of volunteers who had helped behind the scenes including council staff, costume makers, float builders, drivers, chaperones, photographers and sponsors.
The Mayor didn’t just give out prizes, he was a proud recipient too - of a giant-sized £6,000 cheque, the prize for finishing 5th in the Parade’s London Borough’s competition.
LNYDP Executive Director, Robert Bone, presented the cheque together with a huge, golden trophy to Judy McPhee, Director of JAM2000, who produced and choreographed Hillingdon’s movie-inspired entry - in keeping with the Parade’s 2017 theme ‘Lights, Camera, Action’.
Judy said: “It was wonderful for everyone that was involved in Hillingdon’s entry to be rewarded for putting on such a fantastic show in such horrendous weather conditions. The show must go on, as they say, and I’m proud to say that ours did in spectacular style without a single word of complaint from anyone, not even our youngest performers.”
From the Thames Barrier to the M25, Time Out London have picked some interesting Wonders from all over London.
With the days getting longer and warmer think it's time to get out and explore some fo the great views London has to offer. Thanks, Two Feet, One World for the list.
Half term is in full swing and Londons got additives to keep the little ones busy. Thanks, Babes about Town great post.
