Ponders End Community Winter festival

To bring people of together and celebrate the diversity of Ponders End through regular festivals and events.

We did it!

We may not be Hyde Park's Winter Wonderland but our community still deserves a great festival!

PECDT works towards making things a little better by promoting  a strong sense of identity for our local community. It is the only voluntary organisation which aims to involve local people and organisations in activities and partnerships, to provide a focal point for development and to fight deprivation in Ponders End.

We facilitate local capacity building, share information on funding initiatives and provides the opportunity to feed into local decision making processes.

Why                                                                                                   

Ponders End is seen as an area of high deprivation and the area is going through many changes with a major regeneration program, leaving the area feeling cold and unloved.  Many families in the area can not get to the big events in London and just want to enjoy themselves locally. We have a great community that needs a little help.

How we will make it happen

Last year the Ponders End Community Development Trust put a small Christmas festival with very little funds. It was a great success. With help from local businesses we were able to reach out to local people and bring them together for day  of festive activities.

 This year we want to put on another event, bigger and better than the last, so that our community can enjoy a fun day out for all the family. It takes a lot of time, money and effort to bring this all together. We at the Trust have lots of support from volunteers to put in the time and effort but we need the funds to make it happen.

What we will do

If we reach our target   of £2000  we will have a traditional merry-go-round, snow machine, lights, music and lots of activities and festive food for the whole family. We will also be able to reach out to local people helping them to meet new people and find out what's going on in the area.
