Harrow Town Centre to light up for Diwali

To celebrate the beginning of the Festive Season lights will be switched on in the lamp columns along Station Road and College Road.

An eye-catching light garden of snowdrops will arrive in Harrow to celebrate Diwali, at 5pm on November 9th.

The lights garden will circle Katie’s Statue in the Town Centre, where the light garden will feature, on November 9th. They will remain there until January 3rd for the period which includes Al-hijra, Hanukah, Christmas and the New Year.

The light garden is one of a series of activities and events to promote the Town Centre and attract shoppers from Harrow and beyond during the festive period and into the New Year.

The lights and the ongoing business support programme are funded by money won by Harrow Council from the Mayor of London’s Outer London Fund.

Cllr Keith Ferry, portfolio holder for planning and economic development on Harrow Council, said:

“Supporting Harrow Town Centre and our district centres is one of the Council’s top priorities.

“These lights are a great way to celebrate Diwali and the will make the town centre very festive. The town centre has so much to offer and we now call on residents to do their bit too, by coming down and supporting local traders.

“We are promoting what these centres have to offer and making them stand out from the crowd to attract shoppers and help the traders flourish.

“The Council is working on a long-term vision to regenerate Harrow Town Centre and create a place where people want to live, work and be entertained. We have also worked hard to win this funding for immediate measures that support businesses and help them compete against other centres across London in this tough financial climate.
