Sponsoring festive events at Northstowe is a fun and fulfilling way for Greenbelt to engage with you . . . we hope to hear from more customers with suggestions about how we can help boost year-round activities in beautiful outdoor environments.

What We Do: Northstowe Festive Cheer

We’re delighted to announce a triple whammy of support funding for the Northstowe community to help ensure this year’s festive celebrations can be the best yet.

We’ve donated £300 to support the Light Up Northstowe event and a further £500 towards the Christmas tree.

Light Up Northstowe, which is part of the Northstowe Winter Festival, takes place on Saturday 3rd December and organisers are expecting up to 300 members of the local community of all ages to join in the fun.

Revellers can join the Lantern Parade, which begins at 5pm from the north end of Bug Hunter Waters or gather at the Green from 5-8pm where there will be food trucks, a live music stage, community groups, switching on the lights on the Town Tree . . . and, of course, Santa!

Last but not least, Greenbelt has donated £80 towards incentives for people to get out running in the months ahead, as part of the Northstowe Running Festival.

Our Customer Liaison Office Nick Upton and Regional Operations Manager Tom Hulme have also attended the quarterly Northstowe Community Forum at Northstowe Secondary College.

Nick said: “We look forward to continuing to work with homeowners at Northstowe and helping them build a vibrant community.

“Meantime we hope our sponsorship and support for Northstowe events will help everyone enjoy the festive season.”
