Harefield Gazette - - NEWS -

PER­FORM­ERS aged be­tween eight and 50 will rep­re­sent Hilling­don in London’s New Year’s Day Pa­rade to­mor­row (Thurs­day, Jan­uary 1).

More than 40 mem­bers of dance and per­form­ing arts agency JAM2000, in Pem­broke Road, Ruis­lip, have chore­ographed a per­for­mance, cre­ated cos­tumes and built props for the event.

They are hop­ing to be named the best coun­cil pa­rade en­try, after Hilling­don took sec­ond place last year, win­ning £6,000.

Along the route, the per­form­ers will be col­lect­ing do­na­tions for the Michael So­bell Hospice in North­wood, which is the cho­sen char­ity of Hilling­don mayor, Coun­cil­lor Cather­ine Dann.

Mrs Dann said the

The Uxbridge Gazette Se­ries per­form­ers had cre­ated a ‘glam­orous, se­quin-stud­ded spec­tac­u­lar’ that ‘truly rep­re­sents the hus­tle and bus­tle of the bor­ough’.

She added: “I would en­cour­age res­i­dents to come along and en­joy the at­mos­phere of London on New Year’s Day, support this fan­tas­tic char­i­ta­ble cause as well as keep­ing an eye out for our pa­rade float, which we hope will be crowned the best in show.”

If you would like to go along and support Hilling­don’s en­try, the pa­rade will start at noon out­side the Ritz Ho­tel in Pic­cadilly and run on to Pic­cadilly Cir­cus, down Lower Re­gent Street to Pall Mall, Cock­spur Street, Trafal­gar Square and White­hall, end­ing in Par­lia­ment Square.
