Big weekend - Free Grit and Christmas Lights!

@SuttonGrit Twitter logo
This weekend is the last chance to get 10kg of free grit from Sutton Council so that, should the occasion arise during the winter months, you can use it to make safe your pavements and pathways. The nearest place to go from Worcester Park is the Kimpton Park Way recycling from 10-5 today or from 10-2 tomorrow.
At Kimpton Park Way residents have to bring their own container for the grit, but you can log on to to check if there is a queue before you go

In order to claim your free grit you will need to bring your council tax bill or a current utility bill. And anyone who wants to help an elderly friend or neighbour, or residents without cars, can bring along one of their bills and collect the grit on their behalf.
Residents who currently receive an assisted bin collection can have the grit delivered to them. Simply call 020 8770 5070 for details.
While you're at it you can follow @SuttonGrit on Twitter for the latest  information over the state of gritting in the borough and inform them if one of the council grit bins runs low. For more information take a look at the flyer below or visit

While the turning on of the new Worcester Park Christmas lights is a week away you can get a foretaste of what's to come as Mrs Brinkster tells me that they've got the same lights down in Sutton. The official page is short on detail but says
Sutton Town Centre will get the party started on Saturday 24 November when the Mayor, Cllr Sean Brennan, will turn on the lights, accompanied by Father Christmas himself.

The lights will go on at 6pm marking the climax of the day's entertainment which will start at noon and include music, dance and extracts from theatrical festive favourites.
Another council page provides a little more details, such as a starting time and location
There will be festivities in Sutton High Street from 12noon. The Christmas Lights will be switched on, 6pm at Trinity Square, by Father Christmas and the Mayor of Sutton.
 If you're going to go all I can say is "Take a brolly".... and have fun
