In-keeping with the philosophy of Slow Food – reconnecting people with the experience of their food – the idea of the cake-off is to bake with your child or grandchild, as to unite the generations across the family through the wonders of baking.

The Christmas lights will extend from Tulse Hill Station to West Norwood station. The original lights were funded some years ago by Norwood Action Group, local traders and the council. To give West Norwood’s shopping street a boost this year there is new lighting in the street trees – courtesy of the Mayor’s Outer London Fund – and a christmas tree outside St Lukes’s churchyard.
