The actual Switch On with & Infant School Choir
report on the above mentioned event attended by upwards of 200 residents
Saturday 5th December saw a crowd of up to two hundred village residents come together for the annual Village Council Christmas Lighting Up event at South Green Parade of Shops. The music of the South Green Baptist Choir got the crowd in a festive mood with a selection of traditional carols.
Then South Green Infants School choir, accompanied by The Head Teacher and Music Teacher, sang a sweet medley of modern carols which told the Christmas story. A helpful elf was on hand to announce Father Christmas who emerged from the green grocers with sweets for the children. Kacey Paxton and Amelie Walsh of South Green School and Cllr Danny Lawrence, Deputy Major of Basildon Borough Council, and of course Father Christmas, then pressed the plunger to light the lights at South Green shops. Kacey and Amelie were presented with a chocolate Father Christmas and a certificate in gratitude for turning on the lights.

2ND LITTER PICK OF 2015
SATURDAY 3RD OCTOBER
Despite a lower than normal turnout of the public, due to a
foggy, damp morning, a respectable 6 or 7 black sacks were collected. Cllrs,
Cottle, J and J Dear and Willingham attended preparing the equipment and
collecting rubbish. As the fog was quite
bad it was decided to end the litter pick at 11.00am. James Hendry had arranged for the black sacks
to be collected and they were at 12.30pm from South Green Recycling Point. James has been thanked. Subsequent litter pick
dates will be discussed at January 2016 meeting.
