A Twickenham Christmas Message From Santa

Hooray! And a Ho Ho Ho too. Santa’s been to Twickenham to deliver this special video message just for the good people of the town….

(And a very big thanks to Claud Gibson, a very talented musician for letting us use her track – hear it properly right here.


And in other Christmas and New Year news…

First of all a very big thank you for taking the time to read this website over the last 12 months. It’s you, the great twickerati of Twickenham, that make running this site just about worthwhile. Every single member of the team here at the twickerati blog HQ appreciates it, from the canteen staff and the humblest sub-editors through to the chief reporter, editor-in-chief and non-executive directors. Even the company chauffeur values your engagement. In fact, it’s only the shareholders who have expressed any concern after another year of no dividends.

But what a year it’s been! We’ve had an election, a massive (read: MASSIVE) scrap about a new home for a certain royal barge, plenty of shops closing, plenty of shops opening, 20mph limits introduced, summer festivals, big traffic jams, new look pavements, school site shenanigans and El Brute’s purchase of land for a town square. We’ve had heated arguments about every single one of them. Or rather, you have. And there have even been a few constructive suggestions too. Lovely stuff.

And what about 2015? We’ve got a General Election, the Rugby World Cup, plenty of shops closing, plenty of shops opening, battles over a third runway at Heathrow, traffic jams and yet more feisty and occasionally entertaining debate on all things Twickenham. That Alexander Pope wordy bloke would be well proud of you.

And so without further ado we say, Merry Christmas to you all and very best wishes for a Happy New Year.

You can even add your own 2015 predictions below if you feel the urge.

  1. and a happy new year to you from us down here in Dorset…….we have found out that one of our second home owners in our village lives in St. Margarets and another Twickenham dweller has a caravan at Durdle Door – perhaps we could be twinned! and of course the daughter having been born in Isleworth, and spending all her life in Purbeck returns to live in Twickenham. Like your witty comments…..

    Really appreciate what you do here AND that you keep it entertaining (which makes some of the local absurdities easier to bear). Happy Christmas and all the best for 2015!!

      Happy Christmas and a big thank you to Twickerati. Let’s hope for a new year free of absurdities and blurtings, there can’t be a fourth “nice idea” for Twickenham that gets the area under the collars of “certain well ventilated voices” heated, can there?
