Crystal Palace Christmas Lights

  Winkworth Crystal Palace has helped to save the Christmas spirit in town after the council refused to pay for the Christmas lights in the Triangle. Crystal Palace is covered by the borders of five boroughs and none of the five councils were willing to take responsibility for the lights in town. To avoid the disappointment of local residents faced with a dreary high street during the festive season, director of Winkworth Crystal Palace, Calum Mason, decided to fund the decorations. Calum Mason commented “Crystal Palace has an amazing community with some very passionate residents. Unfortunately this year Croydon council are refusing to supply Christmas lights for the main Crystal Palace Triangle area due to cut backs. A decision which has left the locals feeling short changed. As director of Winkworth Crystal Palace, and a local resident, I decided to step in to help. Crystal Palace is a unique place with a very strong community spirit and I feel that this is a small gesture from one local business to have a chance to give something back to the area and bring some much needed festive cheer.” The lights were put up and switched on last week just in time for the window display competition that is going to be running in town and will be judged by TV star and interior designer Linda Barker. Winkworth Crystal Palace are taking part in the competition so fingers crossed they win!
