How do you top an opening of last years imaginary Christmas lights, introduce Sharon, the Shining Sensible Saviour Celebrating South Norwood.
In true SNTB style our comrade Rose has marked the season with our very own ‘Angel of South Norwood – London’s Lake District’. Armed with scissors in one hand, and a chicken drumstick in the other, Sharon is representative of the ‘melting pot’ which is South Norwood, a wonderful mixture of all vibrant and diverse cultures.
The creator is a member of citizen group the South Norwood Tourist Board. She added: “The chicken and the scissors are emblems of hope and industry and symbols of our roots. They are also found on the South Norwood Tourist Board flag.
“It reminds people we should be proud of our working class roots. Sharon is gazing lovingly towards our high street and she is really happy about it.”
The Mirror, Evening Standard and Time Out have articles, interviewing Rose and name checking the world famous SNTB; I think Australia and South America are the only continents not to have reported on events in our wonderful area but I’m sure Sharon may change this, especially if Brazil get jealous that Sharon has her hands full!
All at SNTB love it and now the media has caught on, we expect Sharon to have her own Facebook page, Twitter account and agent. It has even been rumoured that the Democratic Party in USA are considering asking Sharon to run against Donald Trump in the next election but this may be a pack of lies.
If you are travelling on Southern Rail, look out for the glowing light that radiates from Sharon, bringing Peace, Joy, sensibility and hopefully a wry smile during our festive season.
These are just a few but we’ll keep you updated on Facebook.
If anyone can get Boris Johnson or Donald Trump to comment on Sharon, SNTB will buy them a pint, and present a framed photo of them next to Sharon – LET THE WHOLE WORLD KNOW OF SOUTH NORWOOD.
