Hello. Well that was a great Festive Evening. Thank you Ickenham Festival and all the people who put so much time and effort into making it so enjoyable. And thank you all the visitors for braving the chilly weather to participate in this great community event.
As promised, the video of the winners of the Characters of Ickenham poll is now online.
It’s going to be dry tonight, whoopee! Good news for all the street activities in Ickenham village centre. Wrap up warm and come and enjoy an evening (6 to 9) of “music, activities, fun and shopping”, according to Ickenham Festival which makes the whole thing happen.
We’ll be in the Village Hall meeting old and new friends, running the traditional ‘sweets in the jar’ competition, selling copies of Yesterday in Ickenham and displaying images of the winners of the ‘Characters of Ickenham’ contest run earlier in the year.
We look forward to seeing you there.
(And, if you miss it, we’ll be uploading the slideshow here tomorrow morning.)

This is the question we posed about four weeks ago. In just two weeks many of the lovely people of Ickenham rose to our challenge and submitted photos and ideas. From them we’ve burned a DVD of the best 96 for our stand in the Village Hall at the Festive Evening on December 9th.
The deck cycles through 80 rolling slides. It lasts 6m 30s. All photographers are credited in the slides and at the end.
A marvellous effort all of you.
If you can’t get to the Festive Evening, please enjoy them here (and share them if you want) with family and friends.
