Christmas comes to Chiswick

A couple in Chiswick have gone all out to impress this Christmas. Julie and Harry Simpson have recently moved here and the people they’re trying to impress are their seven year old twins Freddie and Oscar.

“The children have special needs” says Julie, “and Harry just wanted to do something really special for them”.

The boys have Fragile X Syndrome, which causes a range of developmental problems. When the lights went on, their parents were gratified to hear screams of delight and excitement. Other people have been complimenting them on the display too, taking pictures and posting their letters to Father Christmas in their special Santa’s postbox.
