Welling Sparkle Christmas 2023

On 19th November, we had a Welling celebration of Christmas. Fabulous Christmas Market with gift Stalls, Kids Fun, Seasonal Food, Mulled wine, hot chocolate, live entertainment, Santa and more at a BRAND NEW larger location of the Westwood Lane car park! 

We got a big Christmas tree for Welling corner, donated by Danson Park Fireworks and we were able to get 41 Christmas lights in Welling Town Centre, spreading out from Welling Corner on Bellegrove Road, Upper Wickham Lane and Welling High Street.

Discover Welling loves to support the local community, so we were pleased to ‘pay it forward’ again this year by donating £5 for a present towards the Salvation Army Christmas toy appeal for every lamp post that we lit up.  We also had several of our sponsors  upgrade their sponsorship to include donating a Christmas experience to a family in need.

Each year, Bexley Council give each town centre a grant to use towards promoting the town centre and for 2023, we were able to use £1,500 from the council grant to put towards the Christmas lights.

Sponsorship and Supporters

Thank you to the following businesses and groups who have sponsored a lamp post.

We would also like to thank everyone who donated at least £50 towards the lights and logos for each business will be added to our thank you sticker. 

Festive Welling

Here is a  selection of photos of some of the shops that look festive.
