Until I connected with other Greenford residents on social media I had no idea just how obsessive some of them are about the Bridge Hotel’s Christmas countdown sign. For years there has been some indication as to how long is left until next Christmas, in fact I think there was a time when a sign was up all year round. The Hotel itself is very attractive, with its leaded windows and original features such as the ram on the windvane, the emblem of Young’s Brewery. The original building dates from 1937 but adjoining accommodation was added more recently. Click here to take a look at their site.
