Happy New Year to Winchmore Hill Residents

We hope everyone had a safe and enjoyable Christmas and New Year.

The Christmas get together on the Green didn’t seem to get people out on a rather drab and wet Saturday afternoon but the dog show was definitely a success with a wonderful array of dogs all dressed up in their finest Christmas outfits. We must give a huge thank you to Clare from Muddy Muttleys who ran the show with great organisation and passion which was much appreciated. Please consider giving her a call if you are dog owner looking for dog training, dog walks or dog boarding, she is based only a few minutes away in Bush Hill Park.


The children’s story telling was also a great success so thank you to Maria, owner of Agha Interiors on the Green who arranged this. She is keen to do more events like this and we will let you know about these later in the year. The Woodcroft event was also a big success with over 60 tickets sold. Father Christmas was there for an hour or two (busy guy!) and there was much enjoyment of the music and the drinks for sale by the Little Green Dragon micro pub.

Winner of the 2021 N21 Advent Calendar Competition announced
As part of an initiative to support local shopping during the run up to Christmas WHRA invited 24 businesses to take part in a competition to dress their windows each having a different date in December to show off their design skills and to draw interest from local residents.
A window sticker was also produced to promote our ’shop local’ campaign which the businesses put inside their windows.
Four  businesses were shortlisted for a prize of a luxury hamper which in the end went to interior design and furnishings shop Il Falcone, on Winchmore Hill Broadway. Their winning entry based on an igloo in a snow scene was very imaginative and made almost entirely of recycled materials.
Others commended, were Agha/Home who featured a large illuminated number one, The House who used a Christmas tree as a centrepiece decorated with model houses and Hopper & Bean whose visual theme was based on the story of the Grinch.
We would like to give our appreciation to those who took part and we hope to do the same again next year.

Please support these shops and all our local shops in 2022.
