Bossom Day Street Party now postponed until April 2021
The Blossom Day W4 Steering Group has been closely monitoring Government and Public Health England advice concerning Covid-19 (coronavirus). Above all we are concerned not to cause harm by spreading the virus. We are very aware of the need to provide certainty to our sponsors, stallholders, residents and the general public.
We therefore took the difficult decision to postpone the Street Party until April 2021.
However, as a sign of hope at this difficult time, the Haiku and Poem Competition is still going ahead. and are available on the Poetry Competition Page where we will announce and publish the winners.
And, despite Covid-19, the blossom returned to Staveley Road this spring in all its beauty and we posted photos and updates on our photo gallery.
A local band BGM recorded this lovely blossom song to go with the photos. The song was recorded under social distancing and isolation rules in April 2020.
We want to take this opportunity to say a huge thank you to all who have been so supportive of our work to ensure the 91 cherry blossom trees can survive and thrive. Thank you to our corporate sponsors, Fuller’s London Pride and Horton and Garton, our community sponsors, Grove Park Group, St Michael's Church, Chiswick School and Chiswick Book Festival, plus the Good Gym, prospective stallholders, volunteers and all our residents. We look forward to working with you all again later this year to plan for Blossom Day 2021.
