Residents of Corney Rd decided to arrange their own carol service this year – outside, socially distanced and organised by the street What’sApp group. What could better epitomise the spirit of 2020? Most of the street’s residents chose a carol and stood outside their homes to sing, with a little musical backing from a sound system at number 36.
“Even Norman, our resident homeless man (oxymoron?) who used to live in the cemetery shed came along”, said photographer Frank Noon, who lives in the street. (Thanks to help of the neighbours and Father Simon Brande of St Nicholas Church, Chiswick Mall, he has now been housed) “Despite the drizzle a lot of Christmas cheer was spread”.
