Our ever popular Winter Lights event was held at Bell Square recently - and as you can see from the photo gallery it's a dazzling and beautiful for everyone that comes along.  As always, it's a free event and everyone is welcome.

One of our Bell Square Ambassadors Catherine came along and was inspired to write this beautiful poem, read it in full below

WINTER LIGHTS

The ceremony of winter lights

A harbinger of many cold nights

Lit up with many-hued beacons of hope

Held by the future of tomorrow

& yesterday’s shadow

Making memories new

And brushing old ones anew

At the church, a sea of illuminated creatures

Heard the mayor praise Hounslow’s features

She sparked the fire

Of Hounslow’s desire

Up went the gargantuan bell held by a rope

As did the lady on the tight rope

There resounded in the air

An echo, as a hundred rockets did flare

And the speakers did blare

Hounslow was the place to be

For all those who did dare!

- Catherine Habbie
