A message from the Mayor and Mayoress of Barnet about our local Mayoral Charity
The Mayor and Mayoress of Barnet
This Sunday evening the Mayor and Mayoress of Barnet will be hosting the Mayor's Christmas Carol Service. Expect an evening of festive carols and readings, complete with a multitude of mince pies and mulled wine. It will take place at Hampstead Garden Suburb Free Church, NW11 7AA between 6pm & 8pm.
This is a free event but there will be a collection for the Mayor's Appeal, which as you may know, is supporting Homeless Action in Barnet (Featured in the Barnet Eye Advent Calendar this Monday). This will be the last event benefitting the Appeal in 2017 with a busy programme planned for 2018. Among other things, there will be an Old Tyme Music Hall , a tour of Mansion House and a dinner with Rt. Hon. John Bercow MP.
If you would like to come to the Carol Service, it would be appreciated if you would let us know by clicking here. It is free to attend but it helps us cater refreshments if know how many people are attending

Exclusive Tour of Mansion House
Monday 12th February
Mansion House is the official residence of the Lord Mayor of London. The treasures in the Vault are amazing, as are the works of Dutch and Flemish art, the decor, the sculptures and the marvellous chandeliers. Superb.
For 20 years HAB has been supporting the most vulnerable across Barnet, from its home in Woodhouse Road. I have long been a supporter of this Charity. It started as a soup kitchen in Finchley Methodist Church and Finchley Reform Synagogue. I remember helping them secure the premises in the mid 1990s and am proud to be supporting them as my chosen charity.
I intend that the money raised during the year will be used to improve and extend this building, enabling HAB to provide its valuable services for future generations.
