LIGHTS UP NORWOOD
No, not street lights but lights in the streets at Christmas time. This initiative was conceived in response to the COVID restrictions – in particular the cancellation of the Norwood Pageant which brings many people, especially children, to Norwood to revel in the sight of the camels going up The Parade, to get a balloon and to enjoy the excitement of the floats with people they know. ‘Lights Up in Norwood’ will present no social distancing problems, no requirements for hand sanitisers or masks and yet provide a vehicle for community engagement and enjoyment for all.
Local retailers have supported the venture generously with sponsorship in prizes amounting to almost $1000 to date, for which the Association is extremely grateful.
Householders will be encouraged to start erecting lights from the last weekend of November and to leave them up until the beginning of 2022. The competition will close for at 5pm on Friday December 10, 2021 so that judging may then take place by an independent panel. The Association expects winners to be announced on Tuesday December 21 at an NRA function.
A map will be created on this website locating the competing entries to enable the public to drive around the four quarters of Norwood to see the lights – especially in the week before judging and until the week after Christmas 2021.
