Donated by the East Barnet Village Community Christmas Fair
Thanks to Councillor Phil Cohen and James at Chas Lowe for their great help in making this a reality,
and of course thanks to the East Barnet Village Christmas Committee.
Last year's Fair was a great success and the money raised provided this lovely Balmoral bench.
Knit Wits (who are local girls) donated the seats to East Barnet Village.
Knit Wits is an amazing group who have raised funds for charity and for the seats for East Barnet Village's War Memorial.
So when you're out and about and spot them, please do buy a few...!
