The Park Hotel in Teddington has pledged to ‘go greener’ this Christmas. To champion a more sustainable festive season, this Young’s hotel and pub will be ditching the tinsel and banning the baubles in favour of handcrafted Christmas decorations and environmentally friendly initiatives.
The spacious and elegant interiors will be adorned with sustainably crafted Christmas regalia such as locally foraged pinecones, dried fruit decorations, ornaments made from salt dough and hundreds of origami stars shaped out of disused menus. Enlisting help from the local community, The Park’s team will be handcrafting as many decorations as possible to dress the venue.
To celebrate the season of giving, The Park has also vowed to exclude Christmas crackers, due to the unnecessary waste they produce, in favour of gifting special handmade tree decorations to every guest dining from the Christmas Feast menu.
Christmas Crafting – Deck the Halls at The Park
On 18th and 25th November from 7.30pm, The Park will be inviting locals to join the fun with Christmas crafting evenings. Taking place in the venue’s Snug, you can expect to see plenty of festive folding, ribbon-cutting and bow-tying as the grand fireplace casts a cosy glow. Mulled wine and mince pies will also be provided for those helping to spread the Christmas cheer.
Teddington Lights Up – The New Look Revealed
To celebrate, the hotel’s new look will be unveiled on Thursday 28th November, as part of the annual ‘Teddington Lights Up’ celebrations. Prior to the Christmas lights switch-on, The Park will be hosting Jessica Barclay (Ms Middlesex Galaxy) as the Snow Queen, who will be reading stories and singing for the little ones from 4pm, followed by traditional carols later in the evening. There will also be a pop-up Minuty rosé wine bar and free whiskey tasting, as well as plenty more surprises.
General Manager, Phil Harris, comments: “We believe that it is our duty, as a big business in Teddington, to champion a greener Christmas and to show that a return to traditional, handcrafted and ultimately less wasteful methods is possible and actually preferable. We have had great feedback from the locals so far and hope that the good people of Teddington and beyond support us in our quest.”
