PUBLISHED: 09:00 27 November 2018
On the first day of Christmas, what did my milkman give to me? He switched on my eco-friendly tree!
A well-loved Wanstead milkman will be doing in the honours at the Christmas light switch-on in George Green on Friday, November 30.
Steve Headley, who works for Parker Dairies, is set to roll up in his well-stocked milk float and children can expect calcium-rich goodie bags.
Others joining the celebration will be the choir from Wanstead Church school and some pantomime figures from the Redbridge Drama Centre.
“We’re hoping there will be a good turnout for this launch of Christmas in Wanstead,” said Wanstead Park Cllr Sheila Bain.
“The light up offers a real opportunity for people to come together and start celebrating.”
The event is intended to be eco-friendly and plastic-free this year.
The celebration starts at 4pm, with the lights switch-on set for 4.30pm.
