South West London

News, events, tips and advice on SW London

A very special Bellevue Road Christmas


The holiday season is well and truly upon us, and a South West London Christmas would not be complete without a street party.  We were lucky enough to take part in this year’s Bellevue Christmas fair, a splendidly festive occasion marking the illumination of Wandsworth Common’s first ever Christmas lights.

TV chef Ainsley Harriot was on hand to switch on the lights and Father Christmas was also seen to make an appearance during the evening.  The street was lined with stalls set up by Bellevue Road shop owners, which catered for parents and children alike with offerings ranging from face paints and sweet treats to gift ideas and mulled wine.

In addition to the stalls were a number of exciting competitions including James Pendleton Estate Agents’s Candy Cane Raffle.  Free to participate, the contest drew in the crowds and saw three Wandsworth youngsters adding £100 to their Christmas money (Jacob, Oscar and Barnaby plan to spend the lot on Lego!)

Crowds, carols and the scent of spices filled Bellevue Road on 6th December, reinforcing the area’s already strong community spirit and promising a wonderful Christmas and New Year for Wandsworth!
