It was more intended as a deterrent, hopefully even someone stupid enough to cut down a christmas tree might be deterred if they thought they might be caught.

Unfortunately due to political correctness etc etc the law is stacked in favour of the criminal.

Brookmans Park Rotary Club have announced that they will once again be supporting a Christmas Tree on the village green this year. The lights will be switched on around 6:30pm on Tuesday 29th November, with carols being led by the lower school choir from Chancellors.

A collection will be made for charities supported by Rotary including the Isabel Hospice - Children and Teenage bereavement support.

My family really enjoyed singing carols around the christmas tree tonight, so a big thank you to all who organised  the fun event.  After three cups of mulled wine my children went to bed like a dream...or maybe I was in one!
Well done Rotary Club and it was good to see Grant Shapps mingling with his conststituents.

Thanks also to Santa for attending with his (motorised) sleigh, courtesy of his contact with Potters Bar Rotary.  I think he handed out presents to some of the children.

Brookmans Park Rotary had obviously learned from their first experience last year, with a floodlight, microphone and the welcome mulled wine and mince pies.  Stephen Boulton (vice chairman of North Mymms Parish Council), 3 other parish councillors, and Belinda Shapps were also there, and my apologies if I missed anyone but it was dark

Well done Rotary and all who were involved in creating this festive occasion.

I think the timer for the Christmas tree lights needs adjusting. They were not illuminated yesterday evening. I seem to remember the same thing happening last year.

I spoke to a member of Rotary about this earlier. They are apparently meant to switch themselves on at 11am and go off 'well after 10pm'. However they are having a bit of an issue with the lights tripping a fuse or something at the moment which they are trying to get to the bottom of, so if the lights aren't on, it probably means the fuse has tripped.

Does anyone know who is paying for the power supply for the Christmas tree lights, and where the supply is coming from? Is it from the feed for the street lights (which I presume will also be on a timer) or a donation from one of the shops surrounding Bradmore Green?

Hi Dave,
I saw the original trench being dug from the lamp post on the corner near Hollywood to the tree location.

An excellent new star has appeared on the top of our Christmas tree.
Well done.

On another discussion topic someone asked when Santa and his sleigh would be visiting the village.

According to the Potters Bar Community Newsletter,  weather permitting the dates will be:

Sunday 10th December visiting Mimms Drive, Calder Ave, Shrublands, Moffats Lane, Bluebridge Rd, Goerges Wood Rd, Oaklands Rd, Bradmore Way and Peplins Way.

Monday 11th December visiting Hawkshead Rd, Cranmer Close, Grangewood, Osborne Rd, Heath Close, Green Meadow, Westwood Close, the Mount, and Swanley Bar Lane

In previous years the visits have been in the early evening.  Since Santa will be collecting for Rotary charities he would no doubt be very pleased if you could have some gift (cash) ready for him to pass on to others more in need. In case you are not aware of it, Rotary passes on all money raised without deduction.  (I am not a Rotarian but I do know how they do things because my brother has been a Rotarian for many years where he lives in Cumbria)

Any budding David Bailey's (that gives my age away!  ::)) intending to photograph the lighting up ceremony? 

I would be very interested in getting a copy of photos.  You can contact me via the IM symbol at the side of this posting.

Hi Bob,
I've just moved to Brookmans Park and would be happy to take some pictures of this for you. I'm no David Bailey but I work in the photography industry so should be able to produce some decent shots (I hope!).

Hi Lucylu,

Welcome to the forum. Regarding your point about the private messages ...

... you are not doing anything wrong.† We turned off the instant messaging for new members a few months ago after a particularly nasty spam attack to all members. It will automatically activate once you have posted to the forum five times and reach the next member level 'opinions on some things'.

We introduced that as just one of the security measures to prevent opportunists spammers operating.

No, it's just me being cautious. Mind you, if you reply to Bob's post and do one more, your internal message box will suddenly appear, like magic.

Considering the awful weather on Sunday when the tree and lights were being put up, we are lucky to have a tree at all   :D

Well done, Rotary, Chancellor's School for the music, Co-op for the mince pies, and whoever for the mulled wine.  And the weather for being fine!

My kidís faces were pressed to the window last night without reward.  :-[ :-[

Has anybody seen a revised Santa Schedule?

The sleigh came along Peplins Way last night  at about 6pm - my 3 were very impressed !

It was raining pretty heavily so perhaps the route was cut short.
