For the first time this year, WDC/CND and other community groups joined together under the banner of "Thinking Ahead for Merton" to take part in the "Wimbledon Winter Wonderland" parade. Jill Beauchamp created an eye-catching 'peace dove' costume using reflective strips, Alice Thacker lent us a wide selection of animal costumes and rainbow Peace flags were worn as capes by the banner-bearers. Merton Cycling Campaign kindly provided their rickshaw, which was dressed for the parade with greenery, tinsel, internal lights and its own candle-powered lamps, and WDC/CND Chair Maisie Carter rode in state with our decorated placard, which read "Peace and Sustainability".
Photography after dark was difficult, but we managed to get a selection of snapshots:
