Help decorate Twickenham tree and show vandals they cannot ruin Christmas

Residents in Twickenham are invited to show their Christmas and community spirit by helping to decorate a new Christmas tree on Diamond Jubilee Gardens, following an attack by vandals.

Earlier this month the recycled Christmas Tree installed by the Twickenham Riverside Trust, was torched by vandals and the play area was attacked twice.

Richmond Council has stepped in and purchased a replacement tree, but is asking for the community to come together and help with the decorations.

From 1-4pm on Saturday 14th December, supported by the Church Street Traders, join the Deputy Mayor of Richmond upon Thames and come along to Diamond Jubilee Gardens for a seasonal tree dressing. Bring decorations and help bring Christmas back to the Riverside. Please can decorations be suitable for all weathers (i.e: not paper or card) and not be made of glass.

The community tree dressing will be accompanied with music, stalls, mulled wine and mince pies.

The event will also mark the installation of CCTV at the park, which will hopefully act as a deterrent to vandals in the future.

Cllr James Chard, Deputy Mayor of Richmond upon Thames, who is attending the community tree dressing, said:

“We were appalled by the mindless act of vandalism which saw the destruction of the Diamond Jubilee Gardens Christmas Tree. We hope that the whole community will come together to show that the spirit of Christmas remains undampened in Twickenham.”
