This morning we are over half way through Advent to Xmas!
For today's gem, we visit Childs Hill (which if you are unfamiliar with the area is to the North Eastern side of Cricklewood, where Cricklewood station is located), the manor of our friend Anne Clarke. This is a not too serious, spiffingly good little video, put together by videomaker Molly Brown.
The Childs Hill and Cricklewood areas are blessed with a fantastic community spirit. And as we are in Childs Hill, it only seems polite to give the Town Team a plug. They have worked tirelessly to promote the area, conserve green spaces and make the place a vibrant community. So if you are a Childs Hill or anywhere else in Cricklewood resident, please checkout their website and consider becoming a member. Here is a little flavour from team member Marie. I think the Cricklewood community are a model for what all our town centres should have, a team of great residents working for their patch.
The larger Cricklewood area is quite an interesting place, three different London Boroughs have a chunk, Barnet, Brent and Camden. This means that not only does the Town team have the usual challenges, they have to contend with three large bureacracys rather than the single entity most of us are blessed with!
Merry Christmas from the Cricklewood Town Team. pic.twitter.com/WD8tcQ5PqB— CRICKLEWOOD (@cipcricklewood) December 6, 2022
The Barnet Eye Advent Calendar is all about promoting our community and organisations such as Cricklewood Town Team is a fantastic example of what you can do if you are prepared to put hard work into your community.
