New Years day Parade 2010

London’s 24th New Day parade will be held on …. err, New Year day. Each year it seems to get bigger and bigger and as usual the Willesden CC have been invited to attend. It’s a great event and we’d like the Willesden to be there in vast numbers.

A major change this year is that the parade will be run in the opposite direction. This is to cater for the huge American interest, some 100 million viewers are expected to tune in. This might even include WCC members currently living the USA, namely Rick, Diane and Tracey!

As a result of the route being reversed our assembly point is now in Piccadilly, opposite Half Moon Street. Our parade number is 72. See map at –

Ray Kelly suggests we arrive at arrive at about 11.00am for the 12.00noon start.
Ray will be enforcing a strict Dress Code – New Willesden kit only. Don’t panic as he’ll be bringing some spare kit for those without the latest model.

His parting advice is “Wrap up warm and look forward to Julie’s excellent catering at the finish”

See you there.
