Award-winning developer Crest Nicholson has continued its support for the growing Portland Gardens community by announcing its sponsorship of the Marlow Christmas Light Switch On and Shop event this festive season.


The Switch On and Shop event will be on Thursday 22nd November in Marlow High Street. The High Street will be closed from 5pm to 7.30pm for residents and visitors to walk around, shop, and enjoy a hot drink. To add to the festive atmosphere, ‘snow’ will fall onto the high street and there will be festive music played to accompany the countdown.


The gorgeous Christmas lights will be switched on by Edd China, TV presenter, mechanic, motor specialist and inventor. Best known for his presence on Discovery Channel’s television show Wheeler Dealers, he has also appeared on Top Gear and Auto Trader. The switch-on ceremony will take place at 6.30pm on top of a double-decker bus stationed in front of Chequers pub.


Christine Tiernan, Sales and Marketing Director at Crest Nicholson South said: “We are pleased to support the local businesses and shops in Marlow. As a responsible developer, we are dedicated to helping to create a strong sense of community that our residents can be part of across all our developments.


“We are very proud to sponsor the Marlow Christmas Lights again this year and are excited to join everyone at the event to kick off the festive season in style.”
