One of our favourite things about Roman Road is how everyone – cafes, shops and houses alike – gets into the Christmas spirit.
You may have spotted the window illustrations on Cafe East, adding a festive cheer to the perma-queue outside.
Or perhaps you have been admiring the neon stars, presents, and Christmas ornaments festooning the length of Roman Road?
Even residents are getting into the spirit: every year we are impressed with the many beautifully decked out houses we spotted out and about, and this year seems to be a bumper crop.
There were all manner of light displays: from tiny fairy lights delicately glittering on roof-tops, to maximalist, colourful displays that you can’t help but stop and admire.
Can you help us?
As a not-for-profit media organisation using journalism to strengthen communities, we have not put our digital content behind a paywall or membership scheme as we think the benefits of an independent, local publication should be available to everyone living in our area.
If a fraction of the local 40,000 residents donated two pounds a month to Roman Road LDN it would be enough for our editorial team to serve the area full time and be beholden only to the community. A pound at a time, we believe we can get there.
