Each year, the Englefield Green Village Residents Association marks the Christmas season by erecting a tree in St Jude’s Road. For the past two years, staff from the local branch of Lodge Brothers have served tea, coffee and mince pies to those who gather to sing and witness the ‘Lighting Up of the Green’.
Funeral arranger Susan Areington and Andrea Leachman, wife of District Manager Richard Leachman, were on hand for those who wished to partake of refreshments, who this year included local residents, clergy, councillors and students from Royal Holloway College. Richard commented: “It is good to be involved in our local communty in a real way. Susan has worked hard to establish our new branch in the village, and encouraging the work of EGVRA is a part of that”.
